Children & Young People

A fantastic team of mini-Alopecia UK representatives did an amazing job for us when they interviewed the one and only Matt Lucas!

We would like to say huge thank you to all the children for their incredible interviewing efforts and fantastic questions. We also want to thank Matt for taking time out of his very busy schedule to let our mini-Alopecia UK journalists quiz him on everything from alopecia, to his favourite jokes to Great British Bake Off!

Matt was incredibly kind and provided the children with a valuable insight into his own experiences with alopecia, following his diagnosis with alopecia areata at the age of 6. Thanks to the fabulous questions posed by our journalists, we also got to see some of Matt’s comedy including a little impression that raised some laughs amongst the team.

We hope any children watching this video will feel inspired to see they’re not alone with their alopecia and that having alopecia doesn’t stop them from achieving anything they want to do.
