The Arctic Monkeys frontman was spotted by a fan in Australia looking a lot like a younger version of the former Smiths frontman.

Alex Turner was caught sporting a new look while out in Australia.

The Arctic Monkeys frontman is currently down under with the band as they play a string of dates in Australia and New Zealand, but took time out to pose for a photo with a fan.

In the snap, the Star Treatment rocker looks like a young Morrissey, sporting a open-necked billowing shirt, not unlike what would have been worn by the Hand In Glove singer.

See the image below, which was shared by Joanna Pappa, who spotted him before seeing the band live that day.

It's not the first time the Arabella singer has been doing spotted doing a bit of shopping lately.

Turner spent Christmas back in the UK and seemed to waste no time once the shops reopened by going on a mini vintage shopping spree in a bid to find unique new threads.

Turner had plenty of time to oblige for photos, however, with one taken at Vulgar- a shop situated on Devonshire Street.

See him pose with member of staff Hannah below:
