Soap favourite Matthew, who plays David Metcalfe in the ITV soap, has had his long blonde hair lopped off in a 'family effort.'

His wife and Emmerdale co-star Charley Webb posted a video of their at-home salon as the scissors and clippers came out for Matthew, 41.

In the video Matthew kept smiling as Charley, 33, set to work with their older sons Buster, 11, and Bowie, five.

And their youngest son Ace, two, popped up at the end of the video to admire his dad's shaven head.

"Do you like it?" Matthew asked as Ace gave the new look the thumbs-up.

Co-star Danny Miller who plays Aaron Dingle said: "It genuinely annoys me how many different hairstyles he really suits!"

And Isabel Hodgins who plays character David's love interest Victoria Sugden in the ITV soap said: "I genuinely don’t know if I’m happy or sad!"
