Big Brother star Hughie Maughan is back in rehearsals for Dancing With The Stars and he is sporting a paler complexion.

The Ballymun native (22) was hit with a barrage of criticism for his excessively dark fake tan on last week's episode but the reality star looks to have scrubbed down since then.

Taking to Instagram, he uploaded a photo of himself in the rehearsal studio, without his trademark bronzed hue and fans were quick to take notice of his lighter appearance.

"You're looking a bit pale Hughie," one user wrote.

The Dubliner came under fire for his appearance on last week's show and received death threats and accusations of racism for his tan.

Hughie insisted he wasn't worried about the criticism, with most viewers seeing the funny side of his look.

Another day at rehearsals .. can't wait for Sunday #DWTS

Dancing With The Stars producers are said to have asked the TV star to tone down his use of fake tan for the duration of the competition.

The series is back on screens next Sunday and will see the 11 celebrities perform together in one episode for the first time.

The show will end with the first contestant being given the boot.
