Take That star Howard Donald, 52, who has remained in the band since forming in 1990, decided to take his son Dougie Bear, four, for a hair cut before starting school. After he was turned away by the hairdresser because his son wasn't wearing a mask, the pop star said it is "pure bulls**t" as he addressed the heated situation on Twitter.
Howard shares his two sons, Dougie, and Bowie, five, with his wife, Katie Halil.
He also has his two daughters, Grace, 20, and Lola, nine, from two separate previous relationships.
"I’m fuming," Howard began to tell his 206,000 Twitter followers.
"Just taken my 4 year old to get his haircut and they refused unless he was wearing a mask!!!"
He explained: "It’s 11 and above according to the rules. Yes covid is real especially when it comes to old and the vulnerable."

Howard continued in an additional post: "But to make little kids wear masks is pure bulls**t just like the world which is turning into scare mongering bulls**t regime!
"Please don’t let the governments turn this into a “new normal” otherwise."
Following up in another tweet, he added: "Your kids kids will be asking u why didn’t you allow this c**p and where did our freedoms go?
"The hairdresser in question obviously took the scare mongering to a whole new level which unfortunately is where society is going unless we stand for our freedoms back."
