BIG Brother winner Anthony Hutton has swapped the small screen for the barbers’ chair to work in a new hairdressing salon in a North East town.

Mr Hutton, 30, of Consett, shot to fame after winning Big Brother in 2005 and later appeared in several spin-off shows, football programmes and released his own dance fitness DVD.

He has now turned his back on the celebrity lifestyle to go back to his hairdressing roots and has joined the team at the Be Premiere Hair salon on Horsemarket in Darlington which officially opens on Monday (November 26).
