Movember Minister

Hemel Hempstead MP Mike Penning, who's also the government's Northern Ireland minister, has had his moustache shaven off in front of shoppers at The Marlowes.

Men across the country were encouraged to grow a moustache during the month to raise awareness of mens cancers.

Mr Penning says this was the first time he'd ever had a moustache- but said it will also be the last time!

He told Heart he's 'hated' growing it:

"It is really weird, probably the most important thing is Mrs Penning didn't like it... but that might be a good idea to do it again" 

He's raised over £700 in donations throughout the month

He says he might have embarrassed himself at the shopping centre today but says the publicity may save lives so he doesn't mind.
