Dan Walker, 43, shared a photo of his lockdown locks as his hair appeared decidedly longer than usual, which left some fans joking that he could be wearing a “wig” onscreen. The BBC Breakfast host admitted that his hair had grown rather wild as hairdressers around the country remained closed after the UK government ordered a third lockdown to slow the spread of coronavirus back in January this year.
Dan typed in view of his 674,000 Twitter followers: “Lockdown 3,” alongside a snap of his overgrown hair.
The star had attempted to style his locks in a similar style to his usual gelled look for his morning TV appearance.
Unfortunately, one of his fans pointed out that he had begun to resemble “Dennis The Menace”, in a hilarious reference to the animated character’s wild hair-do.
They typed: “For goodness sake, as if you didn’t look young enough already, now you’ve got Dennis the menace hair! Should we expect short trousers, scuffed knees & a red & black striped jumper tomorrow morning?”

“Sadly, I decided to have a little trim of the fringe afterwards and… I have butchered it.
“It is SO bad I can’t even show you an actual picture of the scissor shame. This will have to do.”
Dan has been married to Sarah since 2001 and the couple have three children together.
The pair are believed to have met while studying at the University of Sheffield, where Dan graduated with a Masters degree in broadcast journalism in 1999.
Now, the couple continues to live in the city with their son Chuck, and two daughters Susanna and Jessica.
In an interview with the Mail Online in 2018, Dan said the area was the obvious choice for them to set up their family home
“My wife Sarah and I moved to Sheffield last year because it’s played a big part in our lives,” he explained.
“We both studied here and it’s where I began broadcasting.”
