Love Island's Chris Hughes reveals shocking hair transformation on set of new football film

CHRIS Hughes revealed his shock hair transformation on the set of new film Rise Of The Footsoldier: Origins.

Chris, who shot to fame on the third series of ITV2's Love Island in 2017, looked totally different without his usual crop of blond hair as he got into the role of playing a rowdy football fan.

The upcoming British crime film is based on the true story of the 1995 Rettendon murders – where three drug dealers were shot dead in a Range Rover – and the autobiography of Inter City Firm football hooligan Carlton Leach.

Chris stars alongside actor Vinnie Jones and Keith Allen in Rise Of The Footsoldier: Origins – the fifth film in the Rise Of The Footsoldier series.

He revealed his "new lid" in a video on Instagram and said: "On set #FootsoldierOrigins 🎥 @nicknevern @carnabyandy"

The reality star's fans loved the look, with one writing: "Work it babes, really suits you! 🔥"

Chris took part in Superdrug Men's Mental Health Panel Event earlier this month hosted by Superdrug after previously opening up about his battle with anxiety.

He said: "The whole anxiety thing was like a sinking feeling and I couldn't sit still. I used to go to bed and have bad anxiety so I had to be occupied all the time, I had to get up, I used to go to the gym at night I used to drive my car. I used to do anything to give myself a mental distraction from the fact I was suffering from anxiety.

"That went on for a few years or so it wasn't until I said it to my mum this isn't normal I shouldn't be feeling like this.

"I saw a hypnotherapist, I saw a psychologist, I just saw things that could help me even speaking to my mum was a big burden off.

"I manage to cope with my anxiety now."

Chris admitted he still has flare-ups and once feared he'd had a stroke when he experienced his first panic attack in a gym last year.

He added: "For me panic attacks came a lot more recently in my life. I had my first panic attack a year and a half ago and I was in a gym when it happened. Honestly, I thought I was having a stroke.

"I've had about five or six now but I know how to deal with it and it gets easier every time because people understand what I'm going through and it breaks the stigma around it.

"I struggle talking about it because it brings back so many emotions but I know that's a good thing to do and it's a powerful thing to do, and I'm blessed to have a platform to do that now for the younger generation who look up to me. Yeah, I find it hard to talk about but it's such an important thing to discuss."
