Paddy McGuinness is unrecognisable in throwback snap with long, curly hair

Paddy McGuinness shocked dans this week after he uploaded a picture of himself from the 1990s, complete with baggy jeans and a bright tracksuit top.

Presenter Paddy, who is best-known for his stint hosting Take Me Out, shared the startling snap with his 2 million Instagram followers.

“Can a picture get more 90’s than this? I can smell the Cool Water!” he said in the caption, referencing the infamous Davidoff fragrance.

The snap looks quintessentially '90s as a young Paddy, now 49, lounges on an armchair with garish floral wallpaper behind him.

Fans flocked to the comment section to share their thoughts, as former professional footballer Ashley Williams quipped: “Don’t know if prefer the Barnet or the gear.”

Presenter Natalie Anderson said: “Holy heck!”

Fans of the TV presenter also couldn’t believe their eyes, as one pointed joked: “Awesome Shell Suit look like an extra from Shameless pal.”

Another fan with a personal story wrote: “My mother in law use to train with you at horwich leisure centre back in the day haha. There’s a picture on my page of you both.”

A third said: "How wide are the bottoms??"

Earlier this year, Paddy split from his wife Christine, 34, who he married in 2011 and has three kids with, nine year old twins Penelope and Leo, and daughter Felicity, six.

The pair released a joint statement following the split, which read: "We hadn't planned on sharing this publicly until we were ready but after the lack of privacy surrounding our personal life, we feel left with no other option but to clarify.

"A while ago we took the difficult decision to separate but our main focus as always is to continue loving and supporting our children. This was not an easy decision to make, but we’re moving forward as the best parents we can be for our three beautiful children."

"We'll always be a loving family, we still have a great relationship and still live happily in our family home together," they added.

The couple concluded: "We hope this now draws a line under any more unwanted and unnecessary intrusion into our private life.

"Although we work in the public eye we ask kindly if you could respect our wishes for privacy on this matter. We’ll be making no further comment. Loads of love. Paddy & Christine."
