Original Geordie Shore cast member Jay Gardner will be hitting 'the toon' to open a new hair extension salon later this month.

The star of MTV's raucous reality show will be appearing at the grand opening of Extend and Perfect Hair Extensions in Chester Market on Saturday, August 20.

Customers will be able to take advantage of half-price styling treatments, free glitter roots and discount vouchers during the official launch.

Jay will be available for a 'meet and greet' from 2pm to 5pm, while the shop will be open from 11am.
