Coronation Street viewers were left speechless on Monday evening as Seb Franklin (Harry Visinoni) showcased his brand-new image.
The young lad underwent a "goth" transformation, complete with black eyeliner and matching clothing, in a bid to impress his love interest Nina Luca (Mollie Gallagher).
He invited himself along to a gig she was going to and wanted to fit in with the crowd.
Seb was anxious to show his mother Abi Franklin (Sally Carman) his new look but she insisted for him to show her.
Abi couldn't help but make a joke as Seb walked into the room.
As she grabbed for her phone, Seb demanded: "No photos".
Abi replied: ""I'm ringing Chester Zoo as I think a Panda has escaped", in relation to Seb's heavy eye makeup.
The mechanic was not the only one to share her opinion on Seb's new image as viewers rushed to their keyboard to offer their opinion.
Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "What does Seb look like."
A second person said: "Just spat my tea out at Seb."
While a third viewer penned: "Wow I have no words for Seb's new look."
While some fans raised questions about Seb's image overhaul, others pointed out that he shouldn't have to change for Nina.
One fan tweeted: "Don't feel like you have to change for Nina Seb."
Another added: "Seb actually looks ok. However, he should just be himself."
A third person posted: "Seb you don't need to be someone else to be impressive to Nina. You need to act like yourself Abi is right."
Abi assured her son that Nina liked him for who he is and not for how he dressed.
Seb later removed the makeup and paid a visit to Nina to tell her that he was not going to the gig with her.
Nina revealed that she'd booked a hotel room too, leaving Seb feeling awkward.
Roy Cropper's niece is only just getting over her romance with Asha Alahan (Tanisha Gorey) and has been slowly moving on with Seb.
In recent scenes, Seb has been trying his best to impress Nina and she wasn’t certain at first but enjoyed seeing the effort Seb was making.
