Sexy actress Rose McGowan has been met with disapproval for her new strawberry-blonde hair colour - from her fans and father.

The Charmed beauty, ex-girlfriend of American shock rocker Marilyn Manson, recently lightened her brunette locks, which sparked 52 per cent of her fans to declare they prefer her darker in a TV poll on yesterday's (15JAN04) LIVE! WITH REGIS AND KELLY.

And Italian-born McGowan's fans are not the only ones who want her to return to her natural colouring.

She says, "My dad is fighting for it. Being black Irish, he's been really on my case about me going back to my roots."
