Kitty Brucknell is from Cheltenham. She used to be a Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and (more recently) Lady Gaga tribute act, and featured on Dinner Date programme and also on BBC Radio 1 BBC Three and several American TV shows.

"People were awful just because I had ginger hair. They would laugh at me and call me ginger minger. It was a nightmare. I was bullied all the time and it made my self-esteem hit rock bottom. I tried to stand up to the bullies but there didn't seem to be anything I could do.

"In the end I decided the only way to do it was to dye it blonde as I could, which didn't exactly do wonders for my hair."

However, Kitty is now pleased with changing her locks because it enabled her to get work as a Britney Spears tribute act.

She added to The Sun newspaper: "It turned out all right in the end because if I hadn't dyed my hair I probably wouldn't have become such a successful Britney tribute."

How is it that red heads always get mistreated every year in school and its just accepted as something that kids do? Not saying any kid is more important than the next but teachers and adults should teach the kids around them to never bully someone for their hair because its just not right.
