Hollyoaks star Nick Pickard has shaved his head and had his body hair waxed in preparation for his upcoming storyline which sees his character Tony Hutchinson undergo chemotherapy treatment for cancer.
Fans know that poor Tony is currently fighting testicular cancer.
Actor Nick wanted to make the scenes look authentic and agreed to lose the hair across his body.
Nick’s fellow cast mates Ashley Taylor Dawson and Jimmy McKenna were on hand to lend Nick some moral support and even helped out with some of the waxing.
He said: “I am extremely honoured and humbled to be asked to portray Tony’s current cancer storyline, therefore, I had no doubts about having all my body hair removed in order to accurately depict the effects of chemotherapy treatment.
"We should all remember that it is the real life sufferers of cancer who show courage everyday as they battle the disease.”
