Michael Douglas – the BBC’s street barber, rather than the famous actor he shares a moniker with – has become the first celebrity to visit Harpenden’s newest café.

Staff serving customers at Kicks Café in Rothamsted Park were apparently surprised, and a little starstruck recently, when Michael dropped by for a cuppa.

A resident of St Albans, he is a presenter on The One Show where he is shown giving surprise haircuts to unsuspecting members of the public.

However, according to a spokesman for Harpenden Town Football Club which recently opened the café as part of a £100,000 revamp, it was refreshments rather than a close shave that Michael was after.

The TV star seemed to approve, tweeting later: “Great coffee, thank you ladies. I’ll be back.”

Club chairman Roman Motyczak said: ”We have had a really successful launch and I would like to thank the young, paid staff for all their hard work in what was a steep learning curve over the summer.

“More and more people are using the café and we believe it is a major new asset for Harpenden.”
