The 29-year-old was inspired to raise money for the Mesothelioma Cancer Charity after his dad died from the disease last October.

Hall decided to get his beard shaved off yesterday at Thy Barber in Shoreditch, London by well renowned barber Frank Rimer.

He posted a photo of himself with the barber in London, with the caption: “We will be shaving my beard off for Mesothelioma Cancer Charity, this awful cancer is what took my dear Fathers life in October of last year.

Frank will be the man who will be wet shaving me, gonna be a big one. Any donation will be greatly appreciated. No matter how small. Love. X.”

He has requested for people to donate to the charity, which can be found on www.mesothelioma.uk.com

Hall, who is a devoted Wolves fan, started out as a mechanic and is well known for his bushy beard and having more than 100 tattoos, including several on his face.

This year has marked a fresh start for the former Codsall Community High pupil however, who briefly dated Ozzy Osbourne’s daughter Kelly in 2014, as he decided to have his facial tattoos removed and is cutting out alcohol.

He was thrust into modelling at the age of 23 after being spotted by an agent outside a Topshop store on Oxford Street, London and has since gone to have the most the most influential hair in Britain according to Esquire magazine two years ago.
