Staff at a Somercotes salon were delighted when Sky Sports presenter Charlie Webster took a break from sports reporting and interviewing footballers to take part in their ‘summer selfie’ competition.

Charlie was the surprise celebrity guest at the national semi-finals of Slimming World’s Man of the Year 2014 competition and popped into Hair & Beauty, which is tucked away on Clover Nook industrial estate. This month the salon, based on site at Slimming World head office but open to the public, is holding a competition which encourages clients to take a ‘selfie’ in the salon after a hair appointment or beauty treatment.

Each week, a winner bags an exclusive prize from its high-end product range – which includes Redken, Elemis, Jessica and Mii – and Charlie couldn’t wait to have a go.

Charlie, who is well-known for reporting on sports including football, boxing and superbike racing, received a warm welcome from beauty therapist Jane Hill and senior hair stylist Lynsey Mott, and was also given a full tour including the workstations, beauty rooms, a custom-built HD brow room and an art-nouveaux-inspired pedicure site.
