Judge: Matt Hicks

Matt HicksEarlier this year, and much to his surprise, Matt Hicks won the accolade ‘Plymouth’s Sexiest Beard’. In his own words…

I grew a beard at the end of last year, as part of Bowel Cancer UK’s Decembeard campaign. So started a hairy journey that culminated in somehow managing to win the Plymouth Herald’s ‘Sexiest Beard’ competition and getting recognised twice by an elderly lady in my local Tesco.

I am a full time nurse, but also spend much of my spare time songwriting and performing with my guitar and ukulele locally and around the country. I am honoured to be judging in the Devon & Cornwall Beard & Moustache Championships – although I expect to experience a certain element of beard envy!
