You might remember actor Michael Greco from role as Beppe DiMarco in EastEnders.

Appearing on Instagram, Michael spoke to his 49,000 followers with black-rimmed glasses on and a lot less hair than we’re used to seeing him with.

Joking about his new look with his fans, he caught himself on camera and said: “Oh my God I look like Harry Hill."

He then went “eeee" while shaking his glasses about before slapping his hand onto his head, and it’s safe to say he looked completely unrecognisable from his Beppe DiMarco days.
