When you hear the name Dr. Phil McGraw you can't help but think of his trademark 'stache ... well, that and his straight-talking advice.

But the talk show host gave fans the shock of their life when he took a razor to his iconic moustache and showed off a freshly naked upper lip.

Alongside a series of photos and a video of the big shave on Instagram, the 68-year-old TV host scared the living daylights out of everyone writing: "Well... I did it."

But, thankfully, the bold transformation was actually just a cheeky April Fool's prank.

Yep, he succeeded in duping us all.

Revealing the prank on his Instagram, Dr. Phil wrote: "April Phils!"

If prank had actually been true, it would've been the first time McGraw has gone clean-shaven since 2010, when he shaved off his moustache during The Oprah Winfrey Show.

Before that he hadn't removed it in 40 years!
