A witty and highly original collection of specially commissioned photographs of some of Britain's most loved celebrities, 'Bad Hair Day' will intrigue and delight a wide ranging audience. Over 30 celebrities - Cilla Black, Jane Horrock, Ricky Gervais, Michael Parkinson, Benjamin Zephaniah, Michelle Collins, Michael Winner - have been snapped in hilarious situations showing that even the famous have their off days.
