In the comment section, three amused fans replied: "Do this all the time who's got time to nip back to the hairdressers for a lil snip", "Was thinking about cutting mine completely sober might do it now" and "Haaa I did the same last week!!"

Attwood, who wants to give birth in front of TV cameras, was recently in the news for promoting the domestic abuse campaign Facing It Together on Loose Women.

Appearing in a clip, the reality TV personality told viewers: "I wanted to be part of Loose Women's Facing It Together campaign because I want people to know the Olivia you see on the panel — the confident version of myself — I wasn't always like this.

"It would probably surprise a lot of people — as I've never spoken about it publicly — but in some of my past relationships I have suffered domestic abuse. And I think by being transparent, it might help someone else in a similar situation."

She continued: "When I look back over the past relationships, there has been issues that have shown themselves in different forms — from coercive control to intimidation.

"For a lot of people, it'll be hard to imagine me editing myself because I felt like I was annoying or I was too much. I very quickly became conditioned that the things I was experiencing were normal or if not normal, that they were my fault. They'll always find a way for you to doubt yourself and they almost become artistic in placing those seeds of doubt and you start to believe it. If you hear something enough it becomes the truth."
