Married at First Sight stars are known for their ever-changing looks, frequent makeovers and hair transformations, but one former bride’s brand new look has has well and truly taken the cake.

Cathy Evans battled through the 2020 season with on-screen ‘husband’ Josh Pihlak only to call it quits in the final weeks, and now she’s wowing fans, looking virtually unrecognisable in new snaps shared online.

Now happily coupled up, as she exclusively revealed to Yahoo Lifestyle back in April, the fan-favourite is rocking a very sleek new look that has left her looking totally different.

Now with platinum hair, the former bride has upped the ante with a bold new eyebrow style and a very sharp jawline on display in photos that have sparked debate among fans.

In one photo the reality star returns to her wedding roots, posing for a bridal makeup look in which she is barely recognisable.

“You look so different somehow! But still fire,” one person noted.

In other snaps shared to a MAFS fan page on Facebook, the star also appears very different, with hundreds debating whether the new look is just a filter, or a very effective new makeup technique.

“Who’s that?” one fan wrote, not even recognising the reality star.

“How does she do that?” another wondered.

Others pointed out that she was looking a lot like another star of the series.

“Has a similar look to Martha,” one wrote.

“I think she looks good,” another shared. “Also, a lot of people are shaving the ends of their eyebrows off so they can draw the perfect shape.”

‘Nasty’ comment that sparked to fitness change

Her latest transformation comes after the TV personality opened up to fans about a nasty comment that lead her to the fit lifestyle behind her trim, toned figure.

In an Instagram post towards the end of 2016, Cathy shared before and after snaps of herself alongside a bit of insight into her journey and how a comment from a friend’s brother hit way too close to home.

“One of my friends’ younger brother stated I had gotten so fat and I was mortified [because] it was true,” she wrote, describing a hectic lifestyle of drinking, cigarettes and party drugs she was forced to leave behind in favour of a healthier lifestyle.

Cathy isn’t the only MAFS star to turn heads with an extreme new look.

2020 bride Tash Herz turned heads earlier this year with a dramatic new look on social media, trading her raven locks for something a little more fiery.
