Cheeky chappy Tim Lovejoy, you will almost certainly know him if you live in the UK and don’t live in a cave. He is that well-rounded bloke off the telly, used to be on all the lads TV shows, hosted a legendary Saturday morning football show before his easy charm saw him scooped up and offered a lead role on breakfast tv. These days he is to be found cheering up your Mum on any given Sunday morning alongside one of his co-hosts, Simon Rimmer, with an adventurous new take on some old recipe. Or a way to spruce up those porcelain flying ducks.
None of which earns you a mention on this website. However, Time has come to our attention for something altogether more notable and worthy of sharing.
Braving The Shave
As such he commands significant attention and is a welcome addition as a supporter of this great cause. Tim lost his own brother to pancreatic cancer, a particularly aggressive and unpleasant form that usually presents to late to be treated. The Lovejoy family were grateful for the support they received from Mcmillan nurses, the help given to his parents was invaluable. Tim jumped at this opportunity to give some back… Even though Braving the Shave for Tim means confronting his huge TV audience this coming Sunday alongside his already shaven headed co-host. Tim said “Me and Simon Rimmer, we are going to have to sort of label ourselves now as the bald Ant and Dec.” For those of you who don’t know Ant and Dec are the UK’s go-to front men for live shows.
Well Done Tim!
Tim, like all the others braving their own shave to raise cash and awareness about hair loss inflicted by chemotherapy, deserve our support. Its not too late for you to shave yourself… if you are lucky enough to have something to shave. Click here for more details on what you can do to get involved.
It would be great to be able to report in some future post that Mr Lovejoy was inspired somehow to go the SMP route.. he would cut a dashing figure with a Norwood 1 shaved down. And he would set an example for everyone in how to properly carry one off when everyone knows it is a treatment.
