Steve Davis is among a list of famous redheads included in a photographic exhibition celebrating people with ginger hair.

Not that Steve’s hair is that ginger these days, but it was in his 1980s heyday.

The exhibition, Root Ginger, features photos by Jenny Wicks and is raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

She says: “Red hair is the last bastion of political incorrectness and although you cannot compare it wholly with the treatment of other minority groups I think it does illustrate how some members of society act towards people who simply look different to them.”

Davis’s name appears in a list that includes Katherine Hepburn, Philip Seymour Hoffman, D. H. Lawrence, Ann Boleyn and Sir Winston Churchill.

But as far as snooker fans are concerned, there’s only ever been one Ginger Magician.
