Al Murray looked almost unrecognisable during a Good Morning Britain appearance on Thursday. 

The outspoken comedian, 52, left viewers stunned as he debuted a brand new look during the TV interview.

Al, who plays a ‘pub landlord’ for his stand-up routine, sported a full head of hair and a grey beard, which is a stark contrast to his signature clean-shaven look.

The comedian even left hosts Ben Shephard and Susanna Reid shocked as they commented on his new look.

Susanna, 49, said: ‘I can’t believe it, the last time I saw you the only hair you had on you was your eyebrows, what happened?’

To which Al explained: ‘I’ve got hair Susanna, I was due to go on tour so I had to cut my hair, but then that was obviously cancelled, so I could just let it grow.’

He quipped: ‘I look like the pub landlord has been locked in the cellar for a few months.’

One person said: ‘Omg i didnt recognise Al Murray. He looks a different bloke #gmb #lockdownhair.’

While a different account added: ‘Al Murray with hair and a beard, nearly didn’t recognise him there. He’s one of the best stand up comedians on TV.’ 

Yet it wasn’t just Al’s new look that stunned viewers on Thursday’s GMB and he was reprimanded by host Ben after he made a rude gesture live on air. 

The outspoken comedian stuck his fingers up at the camera in response to reports that the BBC is threatening to axe comedy shows for being too ‘left-wing’. 

Al was unimpressed with the news that Tim Davie, the new Director-General of the BBC is reportedly trying to tackle a perceived ‘left-wing bias’ in the broadcaster’s comedy output.

Speaking to Ben and Susanna Reid, Al said: ‘The Pub Landlord (sketch) tends to be too left-wing for right-wing people, and too right for left wing people.

‘The thing is if people really want more right wing comedy they’re gong to have to vote for a left-wing government, whether you agree with it or not the job of a comedian is to cause mischief and say the unsayable, and also to flick Vs at the government.

‘I mean honestly, we’re supposed to be gargoyles, causing mischief and trouble.’

To emphasis his point, the comedian then waved two fingers at the camera and blew a raspberry at viewers.

Too early: Yet it wasn't just Al's new look that stunned viewers on Thursday's GMB and he was reprimanded by host Ben after he made a rude gesture live on air

Ben told him to keep things family friendly, saying: ‘Be careful of the Vs this early in the morning Al’ to which Susanna joked: ‘It was the Victory sign!’  

Mr Davie, the former chief executive of BBC Studios, the corporation’s commercial production and distribution arm, is expected to set out his plans for the broadcaster in the coming week, with impartiality a key focus. 

He is said to have told staff the BBC needs to keep reforming ‘with urgency’ and stressed it must be ‘a universal public service’. 

He reportedly wants a radical overhaul of the broadcaster’s comedy output in the coming months, over fears it is seen as is seen as ‘too one-sided’, reports The Telegraph.

Shows such as BBC Two’s satirical comedy The Mash Report and The Now Show on Radio 4 and Have I Got News For You have previously been criticised.

BBC broadcaster Andrew Neil in 2018 described the former as a ‘self satisfied, self adulatory, unchallenged Left-wing propaganda,’ while he hit out at The Now Show on Radio 4 as ‘contrived ideological commentary’.
