It is a venue used to hosting big audiences, but a crowd of onlookers gathered to witness a different sort of spectacle as Paris Hay had her head shaved at Cromer's Pavilion Theatre.

A bar supervisor at the theatre on Cromer Pier, Miss Hay had a close encounter with the scissors as she Braved the Shave for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Supporters counted down from 10 as hair stylist Katie Jarvis-Ueno stood poised with her hair clippers aloft.

A few minutes later, with her locks lying on the floor, Miss Hay, 25, was greeted with cheers and applause.

She said: 'I feel strange and I might get a shock when I look in the mirror, but am feeling quite proud. I decided to go for the Number 1 cut if you are going to do it, you have go to do it properly.'

The head shave took place alongside a Macmillan coffee morning with cast members from Cromer Pier Show baking cakes for the occasion.

Dance captain Gina Chambers said: 'We were listening to the radio last year when a Macmillan advert came on and decided to hold a coffee morning.

'It was really successful so we wanted to do it again. I made some brownies and cup cakes and don't like to boast, but they have all gone.'
