Newsnight presenter Jeremy Paxman has shaved off his infamous beard for the new year.
Speaking to Radio Times magazine, Paxman, 63, said: "If a chap can't shave on holiday, what can he do? Beards are so 2013."
Paxman unintentionally created a media storm when he fronted Newsnight with a full beard on BBC Two last August.
