Idris Elba shaves Gary Lineker in ‘My Hairy Valentine’ sexiest beard poll.


The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that the annual hunt for the sexiest Valentine’s beard has concluded with actor Idris Elba shaving Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker for the title of sexiest beard of 2017 in an on-line poll.

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.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, there are more and more beards about, but it’s the combination of style and presence that makes for a successful Hairy Valentine. This year Idris Elba shaved Gary Lineker in our on-line poll in both departments..
