Gary Lineker leads Michael Eavis in ‘My Hairy Valentine’ hunt for sexiest Valentine’s beard


The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that with less than a week to go in the annual hunt for the sexiest beard broadcaster Gary Lineker is leading Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis.

The winner of the annual My Hairy Valentine Award is announced on Valentine’s Day 14th February

The BLF says that contrary to pogonophobic mythology many beards are soft, sexy and deeply mysterious.

Previous winners of My Hairy Valentine have included actor George Clooney, who is currently clean shaven, blogger and journalist Tim Montgomerie, and rugby player Geoff Parling.

The BLF says that whether a beard is sexy or not is in the eye of the beholder but the Award is focused on beards in the public eye, whether celebrities, politicians, musicians or sports stars.

The list covers a diverse range of people and beards, with a considerable churn from the 2015 list.

The online poll closes at midday on Monday February 13th

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, in 2017 we may be reaching Peak Hairy Valentine, as beards get ever sexier

There is a shortlist of nine with three more names to be added for the final days of the poll based on write-in votes.
