Coronation Street fans were distracted while watching tonight’s episode.

Adam Barlow, played by Sam Robertson, was still nursing injuries from when scorned ex Lydia pushed him off a balcony.

His hand was heavily bandaged tonight, but that’s not the only thing that has changed with his appearance recently.

The ITV soap character is sporting a new hairstyle.

He normally has his dark locks slicked back in a smooth looking quiff, but he is currently rocking a head full of tight curls.

The new look had fans all saying the same thing, with some even mistaking him for curly haired co-star and on screen relative Simon Barlow, played by Alex Bain.

Fans of the soap took to Twitter to share their thoughts.

Swalk said: “Has Adam actually borrowed Simon’s hair???!!! #Corrie.”

Twinkle said: “Has Adam had a perm? #Corrie”

Meanwhile, Tina said: “#corrie what’s with Adam Barlow’s hair? He needs to pay a visit to David’s salon. His hair gets longer and curlier in each episode”

Nick said: “Seems Adam Barlow picked up Simon’s toupee in the dressing room by mistake #Corrie #coronationstreet”

And Debbie added: “Adam what’s going on with the hair, the 70s want their perm back #Corrie”
