'I describe my hair as highland auburn but it only appears in my beard.'  <br />
<br />
'Strangely, no one in my family has ginger hair.  I grew up in the highlands in Speyside so maybe it came from the whisky? It's in the water!' <br />
<br />
'A few mates have it, and our dog Pixie, the destroyer… I wanted a dog to go with my beard! I only noticed it recently when I actually grew the beard.'  <br />
<br />
During summer I work at festivals and it comes up bright in the sun. Like a see-you-jimmy hat. People comment You have a cracking beard mate!<br />
<br />
'I’ve never really had a problem in life with people insulting me, I can get quite fiery.'
