New Zealand's first bloke Clarke Gayford is a man of many talents.

But while on our shores he's best known for hosting the TV show Fish of the Day, Gayford had fans giggling last night after he was called Jacinda Ardern's "hairdresser fiance" by a UK news outlet.

Taking to social media, the 45-year-old shared a screenshot of the headlines written by The Daily Mail for a story about the couple's Covid-19 diagnosis.

Alongside the picture, he hilariously wrote: "Freedom day and symptom-free, which is a world away from when the Covid fever hit me so bad I somehow forgot I am a hairdresser".

He also added a few humorous hashtags, including: "Hair by Clarke", "Maybe he's born with it, maybe it's Covid", and "just a perm thanks".

It's not yet clear why overseas media think Gayford has traded in his camera and fishing rod for scissors and shampoo.

But either way, it made us laugh!
