Pop star Jessie J is to shave her head live to raise money for Red Nose Day.

The Do It Like a Dude and Price Tag singer, who was a judge on the first series of The Voice, announced her charity venture on Twitter, telling fans: “I am SO excited and honoured to be able to finally officially announce I will be shaving my head LIVE for you ALL to watch in March 2013 for @rednoseday :D #letsraisesomemoney.”

In the build up to the announcement she told fans on the social networking site: “I have spent a long time making sure that when I do shave my head I raise as much money as possible for charity...”

She continued: “I have been waiting for the perfect time and the right charity.. But also a charity that can get my amazing fans involved too..” [sic]

Red Nose Day, or Comic Relief, takes place every two years, with fundraising efforts culminating in a night of special sketches and performances by some of the country’s top comedians, which is shown live on BBC One.
