A TV producer has taken to social media to complain after claiming a hairstylist deliberately gave him an ‘uneven hairline’ after discovering he was working for UK News.
Christian Mitchell works as an executive television producer at the channel and lists the program Breakfast with Eamonn & Isabel, Stephen & Ann on his Twitter profile.
He posted two photos of a poorly finished haircut, with a crooked line on the top of his neck.
“I just had a haircut that ended abruptly leaving me with an uneven hairline after saying I worked for @GBNEWS,” he wrote.

“I won’t name the salon because it’s not fair to the other professionals who work there, but damn it, to play politics on someone’s hair!”
James O’Brien was one of the people who replied to the message, along with the writer-presenter: “Sorry to see that, Mitch. Maybe they thought you wanted it one-sided? »
Others were equally unsympathetic, with one joking, “Shouldn’t you be used to someone leaving during labor?” »
Another added: “Please name them. I could do a haircut and they seem like the kind of people who deserve good people business.
Some were appalled at the behavior of the barber, however, one said: ‘I’m a barber and honestly that’s pretty vile. I have all walks of life and politics through our doors and unless someone is a massively offensive c*** while I’m in the store, I don’t care.
The post arrives as UK News approaching its first year on the air, and it has been a bumpy one for the new channel. It was hit with a series of early technical issues as well as advertising boycotts and the departure of Andre Neil.
During its first 12 months, UK News welcomed controversial takes of the likes of Nigel Farage, while his producers would now resort to “book their own parents” to attract guests to its shows.
