Lee Willans, a 32-year-old former soldier from Teesside, said he was probably the UK's biggest Trump fan.

The father-of-three has had the president's face inked on his leg with the words "BUILDERS Bricklayers needed immediate start good rates of pay contact Donald" followed by the White

House's telephone number.

Mr Willans, who said it took three hour-long sessions to complete, supports the new president's idea of building a wall between America and neighbouring Mexico.

He said: "I have lots of American friends and they are having marches and the Build the Wall Foundation.

"I support all of them, so I thought it would be good to have an advert for the wall."

Mr Willans, who lives in Norton, near Stockton, said his partner has accepted the tattoo, saying: "She just lets me get on with it."

The portrait is the work of tattooist Steve Bell who has become famous for inking celebrities on customers' bottoms.

In recent months he has put Ant and Dec, Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, and Jeremy Kyle on customers' buttocks.

Mr Bell, from the Fallen Angel parlour, in Norton, said: "Every now and again I get asked to do one that's a bit off the wall and as long as it's not offensive or racist, I will do it."
