He’s known for his trademark locks, but Big Brother star Zac ‘Ziggy’ Lichman has given himself a drastic makeover while in lockdown.
The 39-year-old, who dated Chanelle Hayes, 32, on the reality show 13 years ago, has shaved off his hair and gone for a platinum blond mohican – and now he looks more like fellow BB star Pete Bennett, 38, than himself.
He’s also clearly been doing some at-home workouts, showing off a seriously beefed up new look while posing both shirtless in a sleeveless Balenciaga T-shirt and jeans.
Is that you, Zac? Big Brother icon Ziggy Lichman has revealed his new platinum blond mohican, bulging muscles and tattoos in epic lockdown makeover
How he was: Ziggy usually has a more low-key clean-cut image with flowing locks
The reality star has also swapped his clean-cut image for a series of huge tattoos which run down the length of his arm.
Ziggy’s latest look comes as his former flame Chanelle said Ziggy is the only housemate that she still speaks to.
In 2007, the pair shared a steamy clinch in the shower on the show and later admitted they did have sex.

While their romance only lasted six months, she told The Sun: ‘Yeah, we’ll chat every now and again. I don’t talk to anybody else from the show really.’
In 2018, Ziggy appeared on Loose Women and said: ‘I have no doubt we were in love’.
Chanelle added: ‘I don’t think even we knew if we were on or off. We had people in our ears pushing us together, plotting to split us up.’

Chanelle is now a mother to two sons, Blakely, nine, with footballer Matthew Bates, and two-year-old son Frankie with ex boyfriend Ryan Oates. She is now single.
Ziggy is now the owner/founder of The Shop NW10, a pan-Asian inspired restaurant and bar in Kensal Rise, where he has worked since 2018.
