Jessie J is elated about giving up her lovely locks for charity.

The 24-year-old British singer-and-songwriter is hoping that the gesture will generate a lot of money during this year's Red Nose Day in March.

The annual event is held in the UK by philanthropic organisation Comic Relief, a charity that aims to improve the lives of impoverished people around the world.

"Shaving my head for charity is something I've promised to do for a long time and Comic Relief has given me the opportunity to try and raise as much money as possible for good causes by doing it," Jessie revealed to British newspaper The Mirror.

"I've loved watching Red Nose Day since I was a kid and I'm so excited to join this year's team of celebrity fun raisers and help support the campaign.

"So this Red Nose Day I'll be shaving my head live on the night of TV. I won't deny that I'm nervous but I am also honoured to be part of this year's campaign.

"Together with help from the UK public, we are on a mission to raise more money than ever before for Red Nose Day. So come on, let's do it."

Jessie's haircut will be televised live in the UK on BBC1 on Friday March 15.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
