Crowning glory: British GP wins Mulletfest competition

Dr Alastair Bush’s not-so-hairbrained decision to keep his pandemic-grown locks comes good in Australia

A British GP has been crowned the holder of mullet of the year in Australia for the curls he grew during Covid lockdowns.

Dr Alastair Bush’s 30cm long light brown hair won for best international mullet at the annual Mulletfest competition in the small Australian town of Kurri Kurri, which attracts thousands of visitors.

Bush first grew his mullet during the pandemic, but decided to keep his hairdo as he works in the British army, and found that “the soldiers are mainly in their 20s and find the mullet funny”.

The doctor from Dorset entered Mulletfest’s international category to raise money for Testicular Cancer UK. He flew out to Australia for a heat, and was subsequently invited back to the finals on 2 December.
