Nineties TV legend unrecognisable after shaving his head as he flies brave children to Lapland for Christmas treat | The Sun

A NINETIES telly legend looks completely unrecognisable after shaving his head and switching careers to give children a magical Christmas.

The BBC stalwart, 53, has joined forces with the When You Wish Upon A Star foundation to treat brave youngsters and their families to a trip to Lapland.

Jeremy Spake rose to fame as the Russian-speaking ground services manager for Aeroflot in the BBC’s 1996 series Airport, based at London Heathrow.

The Colchester-born star was an instant hit with fans when cameras followed him him dealing with the chaos at London's busiest airport terminal.

Afterwards, he presented The Toughest Job in Britain on BBC TV and wrote two books.

Recently, we told how Jeremy looked completely different after finding show fame.

And now he has again revealed his newly-shaven head and lack of signature goatee beard in the freezing cold festive snaps.

Jeremy – donning black-rimmed jam-jar glasses – stood at the front of the plane filled with youngsters departing from East Midlands Airport before pulling funny faces with the kids as they posed in minus 13 degrees climes.

He also captured the bunch having fun in the snow, playing with sleds and making snowmen.

In his caption posted to X, he wrote: "Another amazing trip @whenyouwishUK to #lapland with some amazingly brave children and their families!

"Sometimes the day job is a real privilege."

Sadly, in an unfortunate twist, Jeremy recently told how he was bullied out of his latest job.

Jeremy brought an unfair dismissal case alleging he was tormented by air traffic controllers.

He complained of “bullying, harassment and mobbing on an almost industrial scale” and received substantial damages in a settlement with the Isle of Man airport.

Now, he has taken the Department of Infrastructure — which runs the airport — back to court for a personal injury claim.
