It was then John’s turn to have his head shaved, as he said: “It’s for a good cause. This had to be done eventually.”

Friday’s Late Late Show was dedicated to the work of the Irish Cancer Society on Daffodil Day, which cannot take place as normal this year due to the pandemic.

The pair later showed off their new hairdos on Instagram.

The post was captioned: “2.6 million raised by the Irish public for the Irish Cancer Society the work and services you provide is life changing!”
