Shearer to turn TVcoiffeur

A FORMER Harper Adams student will show whether his sheep shearing skills allow him to "cut it" as a top hair stylist in Channel 4s Faking It programme.

Gavin Freeborn from Ballintra, County Donegal, appears in the programme which will attempt to pass him off as a hairdresser after only four weeks training. Mr Freeborn hopes to convince the judges and eminent members of the hairdressing world, that he was just as handy with a pair of scissors as his shears.

The programme, which was filmed earlier this year, will be screened at 9pm next Tue, Nov 13.
