Yu Zhenhuan, 32, from the northern Chinese province of Liaoning, has announced his intention to have surgery in a bid to turn himself into a television personality. Mr Yu, who has hair on 96 per cent of his body due to a hormone imbalance, made the decision after failing to win the role of The Monkey King in a TV adaptation of Journey to the West.
"I thought I was the best candidate, as I look like a monkey and my nickname is monkey man," the Daily Telegraph reported him as saying. "I read through the book and found professional hair dressers to make me into a real monkey man".
"But I failed the audition because I am not good looking enough"!
EXPECT TO SEE HIM APPEARING WITH ANT AND DEC ON A SHOW NEAR YOU ANYTIME!
