Grow a mo: Peter Crouch, Abbey Clancy and Sir Mo Farah join Movember campaign

Sir Mo Farah, Peter Crouch and his wife Abbey Clancy have posed with moustaches to promote this year's Movember campaign.

The annual campaign aims to raise awareness of men's mental health issues, male suicide and male cancer by asking men to abstain from shaving for a whole month and posting pictures of their facial hair on social media.

This year, Olympian Farah, ex-footballer Crouch and his model wife Clancy are among the celebrities to have got behind the cause.

Presenter Dermot O'Leary, actor Russell Tovey, actor Sam Claflin and rugby player Chris Robshaw have also signed up, as well as musician Miles Kane.
