A Northwich hair salon will no longer provide its customers with gossip magazines in a bid to ban negativity in the wake of Caroline Flack’s death.

Customers at the Oliver Gibney salon in Barnton, Northwich, will no longer be able to read gossip magazines as they have their hair done after Oliver vowed to promote more positive vibes within his business.

The showbiz world has been rocked after Love Island presenter Caroline took her own life over the weekend ahead of a highly publicised assault trial.

Many have criticised press intrusion into the lives of celebrities and negative stories published about those in the public eye, and as a result, Oliver has banned gossip magazines from his salon.

He told CheshireLive: “As a hairdresser you hear everyone’s stories and people slagging each other off – it’s the industry we’re in, you get involved in people’s business. Everyone’s got something to say and I don’t want it anymore.

“It’s more important than ever now. Caroline’s death has really affected me, quite a lot actually.

“Other salons have made the decisions to stop providing gossip magazines and we are standing by them because the negativity bred in these magazines is not healthy,” he added.
