Dorries: When men lose their hair, they have an affair

Tory MP Nadine Dorries, who is suffering from alopecia, says men react very differently to women when they lose their hair.

She told Daybreak: “When men go bald and when they lose their hair, what they tend to do is have a mid-life crisis and go out and have an affair.

“But what women tend to do is to actually go into their houses and lock their door.”

She added: “The worse part is every morning you wake up and look in the mirror – that actually does make you cry every morning.

“That’s the worst part – it’s a bit like your femininity is going down the shower, it’s going down the plughole…

“I’m terrified it’s going to get worse, because it’s getting so thin… it’s an absolute confidence-stealer.”
