You hairy beast

Liverpool man is the hairiest beast in Britain. But today he can do something about it in our splendid competition and prize giveaway

Published on July 17th 2007.

You hairy beast

Is it down to the Celtic genes? The salty air? The Welsh water? Who knows? But walk into any Merseyside swimming baths and the evidence is irrefutable: Liverpool chaps luxuriate in more body hair than anyone else in the land. They are hairy.

So says a new survey, anyway, by a razor company, which reports that “more than half (56%) of Liverpudlians confessed to having more body hair than average on both their chests and other areas”. And that was just the women.

“Confessed” to who? And what's wrong with a hairy back? You might wonder.

Whatever your view, it's a good excuse for a good competition - and today that's exactly what we've got.

That fabulously well equipped Ark Health & Fitness Club, at the Radisson SAS hotel, in Old Hall Street, wants you to be a super smoothie chap.

Forget the swimming pool, sauna, steam room and a whole range of you-name-it luxury treatments on offer there, for both sexes. Today Ark is kindly giving one lucky-but-hairy Liverpool Confidential reader a full back and front waxing worth £40. Just in time for you to bare all on the beach as it'll last you all summer long.

It is a super prize but it doesn't stop there. We've made some new friends at a website called RaysRazors (www.raysrazors.co.uk) which sells more traditional male depilatory products (razors) and they were so shocked by Liverpool man's abundant follicles (13.5% of you shave your backs on a regular basis) that they immediately chipped in with an offer of some wizard shaving tools. A Gillette Fusion Power Razor, a Wilkinson Classic Razor & blades and an Avid4 razor

So just tell us in the box below what you'd like to win, “razor” or “waxing”, enter your details and we could well be back in touch.

Competition closes: Monday July 30.
