TV presenter Eamonn Holmes has taken on a temporary new persona by dressing up as US President Donald Trump  - and the likeness is uncanny.

The co-host of ITV's This Morning tweeted a photo of himself after covering his face in make up and dying his hair blond.

On what is the eve of the first anniversary of the 2016 US presidential election, Holmes asked his followers: "Going blonde and orange for a new series. Have I trumped it?"

The 57-year-old also tagged a spoof account for the businessman turned politician. Holmes' disguise seems to have frightened and impressed fans in equal measure, with one responding to his post: "Oh my @EamonnHolmes - that is truly terrifying. Trumped it and then some."

Another joked: "Your hands are too big (normal size) Eamonn! Other than that, spot on!"

"Haha brilliant! Surprised at how much you suit wearing make up!" tweeted another.

"You look freakishly like him," said one, while another added: "It kinda suits you weirdly."

Anticipating the "new series" Holmes mentioned, some joked that it may be "fake news", while one posted:

"Looking forward to seeing what this is about."

Details about the programme have yet to be officially revealed.
