A British Army doctor has won the title of best international mullet at the World Mullet Championships.

Dr Alastair Bush, from Bovington Camp, Dorset, said he was “super proud” to have won the trophy at the contest in New South Wales, Australia.

In February, the GP flew down under to take part in a competition heat held in a pub in Kurri Kurri.

He won and was invited back for the finals, which took place on Saturday at a motorsport park in the Hunter Valley.

Dr Bush said it had been a “two-year project” which he was using to raise funds and awareness for charity Testicular Cancer UK.

He said: “It’s absolutely fantastic. I’m super stoked with the news – really happy.

“It’s been a fun day, so much going on, and I’ve met some amazing people and seen some amazing haircuts.”

Dr Bush started growing his mullet during lockdown in October 2021, when he could not go to the barber shop.

Mulletfest began in 2018 in Kurri Kurri – a small town of 6,000 people about 80 miles north of Sydney – and attracts thousands of people from around the world each year.
