Gary Lamont, the scissor-wielding star of BBC's River City and Scotland's favourite sassy strawberry blonde hairdresser, was once a wee boy from Castlemilk struggling with ginger-vitis. Now you're invited to Gary's salon as he dons his fanta pants to sing the songs of his fellow redheads, from Cilla to Sonia and Lulu to Bette.

In What A Riddy! expect funny stories, sing-along tunes and maybe a washout apricot rinse (if he’s got time after tinting his pal Donna’s HD brows).

*Warning! This show may contain traces of Sheena Easton.*
