Heartthrob actor Jamie Dornan has stunned fans by posting a picture of himself on social media topless and bald - and covered in blue paint.

"Self-isolation made me do it," said the actor, who has starred in Fifty Shades Of Grey and Anthropoid.

Dornan looked in great shape, though, and was still clearly recognisable under the glossy coat.

He can be seen covered waist down in a plastic bag. The hand of the mystery person who poured the paint also appears in the picture.

Fans of the 37-year-old actor were delighted to see the star back on Instagram after an absence of several years, saying "some things are absolutely worth waiting for".

Some wags suggested Mr Grey had turned to Mr Blue, but others said he should join the dance show Blue Man Group.

Delight

Yet more just expressed delight to see him back on social media.

The actor, who has been at home with wife Amelia Warner and their three children during the coronavirus pandemic, did not say why he was covered in paint.

Dornan is next due to appear with Alec Baldwin and Christian Slater in the TV adaption of Dr Death.

It tells the story of a murderous medic, Dr Christopher Duntsch, who was sentenced to life in prison in 2017 after his gross malpractice resulted in the death or maiming of 33 patients.

Dornan plays the killer doctor.
