Gail Porter shaves her head after alopecia returnsTV presenter Gail Porter shaved her head tonight after her alopecia returned.
The Scottish star was thrilled when her hair started growing back last year after the condition left her bald for five years.
But in November, she revealed it had started falling out again.
After her hair loss sped up quite rapidly in the past few days, the 39-year-old decided to shave it off - leaving a small Mohican at the front.

Regrowth: Porter (pictured left in August 2010) had a full head of hair for most of last year after losing her long blonde locks (right) in 2005
The 39-year-old presenter first lost her famous long blonde locks when she was struck with the condition in 2005, which doctors believe was triggered by stress.
This time last year, she looked as though she had beaten the condition for good when she arrived at a film premiere with her daughter Honey, seven, in January showing her hair starting to grow back.
By March, she had regained 75 per cent of her lost locks, but the regrowth was still rather patchy.
Then, in August, she appeared on the GMTV sporting a short blonde hair do and it looked as though she had finally beaten the condition.
