Michael Legge has retained his title for the country’s longest beard at the British Beard and Moustache Championships in Liverpool. Factory worker Michael, from Kimberworth, Rotherham, started growing his beard six years ago and it now measures 27 inches.
Michael has been crowned Yorkshire beard champ several times and first won the UK’s longest bear competition back in 2014.
He has even managed to bag seventh place in the international competition. Michael has previously said he only started growing his beard as a bet with his mates.
