The Masked Singer’s Joel Dommett is unrecognisable as he appears in Casualty aged 17 in acting throwback


THE Masked Singer host Joel Dommett looks completely different as a teenager in his acting debut.

Joel who is best known for his comedy, shared a throwback video of himself starring on hospital drama Casualty in 2004.

Joel Dommett, 35, made his acting debut on TV drama Casualty

The comedian, 35, filmed his TV with a scene starring himself before posting it to Instagram.

In the episode, Joel played Jonathon Hansell, a teen who had just passed his driver’s test.

He was involved in an accident and in the dramatic scene, Joel was seen accompanying his critically injured dad in the back of the ambulance.

Joel asked the medic: “How is he doing? It’s my birthday today, that was my present, the car. I took my test this morning and I passed.”

He is now the host of The Masked Singer UK
Joel shared a hilarious video of his TV acting debut on Casualty in 2002

He played a teen who had smashed his new car, injuring his dad in the process

His dad was in a stable condition according to the paramedic who told him “well done babe” for passing his test.

But the devastated teen replied: “No it wasn’t. If I had failed we wouldn’t be here now would we. My dad he bought me the car and now I’ve killed him.”

Joel captioned the video: “Joel Dommett in 2002 on Casualty. ENJOY. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂.”

According to IMDB the episode aired in 2004, not 2002 when Joel would have been 17.

Joel is married to model, Hannah Cooper

Either way, his fans and famous friends loved the throwback clip, with many wanting to know what happened to his dad.

Singer Tallia Storm wrote: “This is amazing.”

Another fan added: “WELL – did you kill your dad?! Talk about a cliffhanger.”

And a third person said: “Did he survive? For god sakes man, tell me he made it!!!”

The comedian recently slept through his slot on Lorraine

The hilarious video comes after Joel’s recent topless gaffe on Lorraine.

The comic had been due to chat to Lorraine Kelly’s Christmas replacement Ranvir Singh about the new series of The Masked Singer — but left the show in chaos when he slept through his time slot.

Producers couldn’t get through to the 35-year-old and a panicked Ranvir was left flapping as she told viewers: “I can’t believe he’s done that”.

Joel finally made it on air but only by the skin of his teeth, as luckily Andi had his number and “saved the day” by pausing his own segment to phone him.

He woke up just in time to appear on the morning show without a shirt

The comedian eventually picked up but he clearly had no idea why Andi had called, leaving Ranvir in stitches.

Joel said: “Hello Andi, well this is very exciting.”

Joel has hosted The Masked Singer since its UK debut last year

To which Andi barked back: “Joel you’re meant to be live on Lorraine now! You should have been on half an hour ago!”

It seemed to finally twig and Joel, who was obviously still still half asleep, stuttered before saying: “I thought it was later.”

Minutes later Joel was patched through via a video link but he hadn’t even bothered to get dressed — though Ranvir didn’t mind one bit.

Joel explained: “I didn’t have time (to get dressed) I’m in full Christmas mode now to be honest.”
