Lily Allen’s dad Keith Allen looks might hard to spot these days after growing bold facial hair look for his upcoming theatre role as Scrooge.

The Bodies actor, 70, has swapped his signature grey stubble for a bushy beard as he prepares for his appearance as the Christmas icon in a stage adaptation of A Christmas Carol.

Keith, the father of pop sensation Lily, 38, was spotted enjoying a break from the theatre in London wearing a grey jumper and woolly hat to combat the freezing temperatures… as well as navy shorts and sunglasses.

But it was his new facial fuzz that really stood out in his ensemble, and Keith recently shared his family’s feelings about him rocking the mutton chops.

‘What’s really weird, not so much for me, but for my family is I don’t feel very comfortable acting with stick-on beards and whiskers,’ he told The Evening Standard.

‘I find it very constricting, so I’ve started to grow these mutton chops already and they think I look idiotic.

‘Unfortunately, I’m starting to look like some weird self-absorbed hipster.’

Lily also sported a brand new look last month after she swapped her signature brunette locks for a fiery red makeover.

The Not Fair singer – who is married to Stranger Things star David Harbour – unveiled her new mermaid-inspired long hair, a far cry from her familiar pixie cut.

While the star simply captioned her picture with a mermaid emoji, the woman behind the major switch-up posted a video on TikTok and shared it had taken them 11 hours.

Ester, who runs the chosen salon in New York, began: ‘When Lily Allen hits you in the DMs for a custom Ktip install with custom colour, you gotta answer.

‘As a millennial, those YouTube music videos raised me and Lily Allen, she was my mother.’

She revealed the gorgeous transformation was a spur-of-the-moment decision as the Smile hitmaker had originally planned to get shoulder-length extensions.

They decided to go ‘all in’ and keep the extensions super long as she disguised her shorter hair so it could grow out easily but this caused some issues for her stylist.

Apparently, Lily’s hair was super thick and short, making the work even more painstaking as the hours ticked by.

Ester added: ‘I don’t think either of us were really prepared for the intensity and the complexity of this install. This was probably the most complex install that I’ve done.’
