On the hunt for a "traditional barber shop", Sky Sports didn't have to look any further than Earlsfield.

The broadcaster was looking for the perfect spot to film an ad that would be shown in Ireland and after much consideration decided that Goodfellas in Garratt Lane.

Shop owner George Yiolides said it was exciting to open the shop up to film crews last week (June 18).

"It was amazing to see how many people and work is involved in making a one minute advert," Mr Yiolides said.

"They needed another actor to play the barber and asked our barber Nick Pavlou if he would do it.

"He agreed and as you can see he didn’t scrub up too bad."

He said that although the ad will be targetting fans of hurling, it might well make its way back to viewers in England some day.
