Happy Mum Happy Baby podcaster and I’m a Celeb 2020 winner Giovanna Fletcher has taken to Instagram to show off her sleek new hair and we’re big fans.

The mum of Buddy, Buzz and Max told followers that she’d gone for the chop after previously asking followers, "How many people see their hair back over their shoulders and think ‘should I chop it all off?!’"

“Decided to just go for it AND I LOVE IT!” she said. “Big love to @louisbyrneiciaiw for giving me a good old spruce! Xxx”.

Giovanni’s famous friends and followers were loving the look, with Strictly Come Dancing’s Oti Mabuse saying, “You look gorgeous ABSOLUTELY gorgeous” and Vicky Pattison adding, “Here she is 😍😍😍😍”.

“Love it!! I had a chop last year and was super pleased 😍” wrote a fan and one more said, “Oh wow looks so lovely! Really suits you! X”.

Last month Giovanni and her husband, McFly frontman Tom, were forced to apologise after it was reported they’d claimed £30,000 from the governments furlough scheme – despite being worth millions.

Many took to Twitter to express their outrage, with one writing, “Giovanna Fletcher claiming money from the furlough scheme is madness. Why these millionaires get off with this astounds me. Their greed is unbelievable."

"This weekend there was an article in one of the Sunday papers about us using the government furlough scheme. While parts of the article were inaccurate (including all of the figures mentioned), it is true that we did follow financial advice to furlough someone we employ.

"Although it was a time of great uncertainty, we clearly should have thought more about the situation and funded it ourselves," they wrote. "It was a huge error of judgement and a mistake we wholeheartedly take responsibility for and we have paid the full amount back."
