A CIRCUS troupe, who are heading to the Parr Hall at the end of the month, have been forced to advertise for a ‘wolf boy’ on job websites.

The Circus of Horrors, which shot to fame on Britain’s Got Talent, had already lined up a man from Mexico, who has a rare condition which causes hair to grow all over his face leading to him being known as ‘wolf boy’.

But due to new government legislation, the show has had to place the vacancy on Job Centre Plus requesting applicants have a high standard of circus skills and a minimum of 60,000 hairs growing on their face.

The advert adds people with beards or wearing masks will not be accepted.

The show will be at the Parr Hall on January 26.
