Ollie Locke cuts his long hair and donates it to little girl with cancer03/22/2022
He’s known for his long, luscious hair, but Made In Chelsea’s Ollie Locke has gone for the big chop for the most amazing cause.
The reality TV star took to social media to reveal that he has had his trademark locks cut off to be made into a wig to be donated to a child who may be battling cancer.
In a video posted by Ollie on Monday, a hairdresser is seen cutting his famous lengthy tresses.
Ollie, 35, then shows his followers how his cropped hair had been tied up into segments and put into a postage bag to be sent off to the Little Princess Trust charity, an organisation that provides free real hair wigs to children and young people, up to the age of 24, who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment or other conditions.
He captioned the post: ‘FINALLY.. THE BIG HAIR CUT! On the day after my 35th birthday I knew it was the perfect time It was time to cut off my hair to make into a wig for a little girl battling with cancer.
‘Nothing makes me happier than being able to donate my hair to the most wonderful Little Princess trust, which I did all those years ago too!
‘ThNk you to my heavenly hairdresser @dylan.official_hairstylist and thank you all for such lovely messages for my birthday, it was such a wonderful day!! Xx @officiallittleprincesstrust.’
Ollie was widely praised by his celebrity friends and followers for his actions, with Doctor Who star Pearl Mackie writing: ‘Oh you amazing man! I love this. And you.’
Reality TV star Amy Willerton added: ‘Love this!’
One follower added: ‘You are a lovely man and I think your hair looks great short.’
Another fan wrote: ‘You’re such a beautiful soul. I hope you and your husband are blessed with a child one day.’
The big chop came after Ollie and his husband Gareth recently opened up about their struggles to have a baby via surrogate on Lorraine Kelly’s show.
Asked if they were planning on continuing with IVF after several unsuccessful attempts, Ollie replied: ‘It is our main and full focus. We are so ready for this.
Gareth added: ‘All the knock-backs just make you understand that you are ready for it.’
The chat came after they found out the surrogate was pregnant last November, but miscarried at six weeks.
Early last year, the couple had first announced on social media last year that they were trying to have a baby via a surrogate and have kept fans updated about their journey since.
