WATCH: Clegg Denies Reports He Dyes His Hair

Thursday 11th April 2013

Nick Clegg has laughed off suggestions from Joan Collins that he has been tinting his hair.

The Dynasty star had tweeted the suggestion:


But speaking on his weekly Call Clegg show on LBC 97.3, the Deputy Prime Minister denied that was the case.

"Tinted my hair? Tinted my hair?! Of course I haven't tinted it. Why on earth does she think that I've done that? I've had a hair CUT," he exclaimed.

Meanwhile - as Marks and Spencer reports mixed financial fortune - with like for like clothing sales falling nearly 4 percent over the first three months of the year - the Deputy Prime Minister made clear his support for the brand.

"I'm a major devotee of Marks and Spencer's clothing. Particularly some articles that I normally wouldn't talk about on a family radio programme.

"I was thinking that I'm going to go out and buy myself an extra pair of socks from Marks and Spencer's."

The company has however seen an increase in food sales which offset its poor sales figures in clothing.

"I think it's a great store and I heard on the radio this morning they are not doing well for 'fashion' items," Mr Clegg continued.

"Do you go to M and S for fashion? You go to M and S, you're supposed to anyway aren't you, for value for money clothing?

"I'm not the greatest fashion commercial," he added.
