Hairdresser Royston Blythe, whose A-list clients include Katy Perry (pictured), has been denied permission to build his own house
Celebrity hairdresser Royston Blythe, whose A-list clients include chart star Katy Perry and Hollywood couple Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas, has lost a bid to build a four-bedroom house in the grounds of Wightwick House, his Grade II-listed West Midlands home.

Wolverhampton city council rejected the plan, saying it wouldn’t exactly enhance next door Wightwick Manor, a Victorian Arts & Crafts house owned by the National Trust, with William Morris interiors and a collection of Pre-Raphaelite paintings by Rossetti.

Blythe, whose London salon is at The Dorchester hotel, said there would be no effect on the manor but the plan outraged The Victorian Society, which campaigns for historical buildings.
