Party boy Corey Worthington nearly unrecognisable in latest appearance

Corey Worthington's blonde locks are gone.

Party boy Corey Worthington first made headlines in 2008 after throwing an out-of-control shindig at his parents' house in Melbourne, followed by a shirtless interview with A Current Affair. And now, 15 years later, the 32-year-old has debuted a completely different look.

Looking almost unrecognisable from when he first became an accidental teenage star, Corey appeared outside the Geelong Magistrates’ Court on Monday, where he escaped conviction for assault and damage offences.

Corey's once blonde locks are now a dark shade of auburn and he appears to be heavily tattooed up to his chin.

Back in January, Corey caused a storm when he appeared in a slick black suit as part of a new campaign for ShareCover, an Australian flexible insurance provider for short-stay hosts.

Corey appeared in an ad aimed at helping educate Australians on how to best protect their short-stay rental properties (renting out their property on platforms like Airbnb, Stayz and with a series of DisasterClass clips online.

According to the ShareCover, Corey is an "instantly recognisable symbol of in-home mayhem" and as such is "perfectly positioned to share his extensive knowledge on the matter".

"Guests can get out of control, and I should know," Corey said.

"You never know what your guests are getting up to, or what shenanigans are going down in your spa! The last thing you want is for your guests’ holiday to become your headache."

Daily Mail also shared another photo posted to Corey's Instagram back in 2019, in which he looked barely recognisable from his famous interview on Channel Nine.

In the photo he sported long dark hair and a headband, as well as plenty of new ink across his body. He appeared dressed as a 'Hippie' for Halloween.

Corey was only 16 years old when he threw his famous party, after publicising the event on Myspace.

A reported 500 revellers turned up, with the resulting mayhem prompting the arrival of police helicopters and the dog squad.

Two days later Corey did an interview with A Current Affair during which Leila McKinnon asked: "'Why don’t you take your glasses off so we can see you."

"Nah, nah, I’ll leave these on. I like them," he replied, later adding: "I'll say sorry, but I'm not taking off my glasses."

He went on to star on Big Brother season eight later that year. And in 2018 he returned to reality TV, showing off a new muscular physique when he took on the Australian Ninja Warrior course.
