I HAVE been finding many ways to keep busy during lockdown – even trying my hand at a bit of hairdressing!

I was given the honour of shaving my good pal Johnny Vegas’ head, at a safe distance of course, live on Channel 4.

I heard he’s been getting a fair few compliments too, so who knows… maybe I’ll be opening my very own salon soon!

In all seriousness, it was great fun – and most importantly raised over £3,000 for the Steve Prescott Foundation, who’ve been doing an incredible job supporting the people of St Helens during these unprecedented times.

We’ve been using The Eccleston Arms as a base to deliver food to the town’s vulnerable and elderly, who may struggle to get to the shops themselves.

I think we all need to do our bit – especially when you consider that the heroes of our wonderful NHS, and all key workers in fact, are risking their lives every day to keep us healthy.

The service they are all providing is incredible, and I hope they get their just rewards when this is all over.

There’s no official timetable for rugby’s return, but that doesn’t mean we can’t keep our great sport in the forefront of people’s minds in the meantime.

I’m keeping busy with the England set-up of course, and last week I was invited back to appear on Betfred’s ‘The Last Tackle’ podcast alongside Wire legend Lee Briers.

So during these tough times keep talking about our great game.

Stay safe and stay in.
