Viewers were shocked to notice the journalist had a makeover during lockdown, swapping out his shaven head for his longer, natural hair.
Sean then revealed he grew out his hair to make him look older.
He said the shorter hair meant he "wasn't respected", whereas now with his longer hair, he believes he looks his age of 46.
He said: "I can confirm I am Sean Fletcher but I'm not the Sean Fletcher I was before.
"My son has alwasy been desperate for me to grow my hair … People treat me with a lot more respect now I have my long hair. I'm 46 and I think the short hair made me look younger."
Sean revealed he was often mistaken for weather presenter Alex Beresford when he had a shaved head.

Another said: "I like Sean's hair and he definitely doesn't look 46. He's looking good #gmb"
A third remarked: "Did Sean say he was FORTY-SIX?!?"
