Dec, 44, looked youthful as he sported the dark brunette locks in a somewhat contrast to his ordinary, slightly silver barnet.

The dad of one was dubbed a “silver fox” by viewers during the 2017 instalment of the series and Ant McPartlin’s presenting partner could well be attempting to avoid similar quips from viewers.

The promotional shots, set against a lush green jungle backdrop, show off the glossy brown hues of his hair even more.

He swept his locks to the right side of his head, with a slightly shorter hair length around his ears.

Flashing his signature cheeky grin, Dec looked elated to be back fronting the series.

Yesterday, Sun Online reported on his anger as Ant – his pal and presenting partner – kept his addiction to prescriptions drugs and booze secret from him.

In the candid chat Ant confessed he thought telly fans had “had enough” of him after his tough time.

The presenter, 41, battled tough times in his life away from the telly which prompted him to check into rehab in 2017.

Shortly after, in March 2018, he was arrested over a drink-drive crash in South West London after hitting two cars in his Mini.

He was later handed a £86k fine and banned from the road and, to deal with his issues, took a break from work which saw Holly Willoughby stand in and front I’m A Celebrity in 2018.

During the height of the troubles, Dec fronted Saturday Night Takeaway alone – to huge praise from telly fans.

In the documentary, Dec also got emotional saying: “It’s been a tough couple of years.

“It’s really tested the bond that we’ve shared since we were like 13 years old.

“I was incredibly angry at the start. So angry. Disappointed in him that he didn’t ever come to me and say, ‘I’m struggling, I need you.’

“I thought that if the shoe was on the other foot I would have gone to him and said, ‘I’m in trouble and I can’t handle this, I need your help.’

“He never came to me – and that hurt me a lot.”
