Meet the hunky older men with over ten million social media followers between them who are putting men half their age to shame

WELCOME to the online silver fox club.

With the likes of George Clooney and Phillip Schofield already notable members, the world of Instagram has recently unearthed a tonne of older, hunkier men rocking the grey lock look.

These fellas have seemingly bypassed their midlife crisis, choosing to hit the jackpot with careers in modelling, acting and fitness.

With millions of social media followers between them, we take a look at the hunks who are putting men half their age to shame.

Gianluca Vacchi, 49

First up, we have the millionaire businessman Gianluca Vacchi.

The inked-up Italian regularly treats his Instagram followers to pics of him strutting around topless and sunning it up in a pair of small briefs.

Not only does the 49-year-old hold a ripped torso but he is also worth an estimated £229million.

Recently he told followers: “Remember those who gave their all. Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.”
