Shannon Noll shocks with major physical transformation: 'Jacked AF'

Fans have been calling the singer 'Shannon Swole'.

Shannon Noll has left his followers stunned after he shared a photo on social media showing off his dramatic physical transformation.

The former Australian Idol contestant, who returned to reality TV last year as a contestant on The Masked Singer, posted a gym selfie on Instagram with his impressive biceps on full display.

“I’m loving being back in the gym!” he captioned the post. “My body is responding really well! Thank goodness for muscle memory!”

The What About Me hitmaker also credited his physique to eating plenty of protein and “heaps of eggs”.


Shannon’s followers quickly took to the comments to compliment his new look, with a number of people calling him “Shannon Swole”.

“I thought you were at the gym with the Rock!” Brendan ‘Jonesy’ Jones joked.

“Nice guns,” one fan replied, while another said he looked “jacked AF”.

“You gotta lift,” a third wrote, quoting his hit song Lift.

“You look amazing!” someone else commented, followed by a different user who said, “Those arms are like solid iron covered in concrete”.

Shannon’s post comes shortly after he posted a throwback photo of himself and Guy Sebastian on Australian Idol to celebrate the most recent season’s finale.

“20 years ago it was Guy and I in the Australian Idol Grand Final, but tonight a new winner was crowned,” he wrote.

While he previously told Yahoo Lifestyle he wanted to appear in the Channel Seven reboot of the singing competition as a judge or mentor, he ended up releasing a podcast titled Idol Talking With Nollsie to coincide with the series.

The podcast saw Shannon sharing his commentary on the performances and interviewing former contestants Rob Mills and Kate DeAraugo, as well as ex-judge Ian ‘Dicko’ Dickson.
