Paul Hollywood, is that you?

The 55-year-old Great British Bake Off judge wowed Instagram followers on Saturday with a throwback shot of himself during his younger days.

Sporting a white T-shirt and a chain around his neck, a youthful Hollywood flashes a big grin for the camera. Noticeably absent are his signature silver locks and trademark facial hair that fans of the celebrity baker have grown accustomed to on GBBO.

"Brother has just sent me this from 92/93 I think, no beard !! 😂" he captioned the snap.

Fans were also quick to point out the younger Hollywood's resemblance to the Baldwin brothers (Alec, Daniel, William and Stephen) in the comments section.

One fan wrote, "A look of the Baldwin brothers 🔥??" while another asked, "You sure that's not a young Baldwin brother?! 😂" "Lies, that's a missing Baldwin brother!" another follower joked.
