Jimmy Carr has revealed he is the latest celebrity to undergo a hair transplant.
The 47-year-old said: “So what happened was my hair was socially distancing from my forehead and I’d had enough of it.”
He added: “I shaved my head and what they do is take hairs from the back of your head and they put them on the front.
“Basically I had enough hair, it was just in the wrong place. It was a bit of redistribution.”
The comedian made the admission on Peter Crouch: Save Our Summer, which airs tonight.
He has previously talked about his body image issues including his thinning hair.
The presenter of the Channel 4 show 8 Out Of Ten Cats said in March 2019 he wanted a procedure so that he can have a “proper Elvis quiff.”
He said: “I want to go big. Go big or go home. …it’s showbusiness baby, let’s enjoy ourselves.”
Carr first became interested in hair transplants after he had his teeth replaced with veneers.
He joins a host of other stars who have had a transplant.
Brian McFadden previously revealed he felt “self-conscious” at his thinning hair and receding hairline, X Factor and I’m A Celebrity star Jake Quickenden underwent a £5,000 hair transplant after “years of anxiety and paranoia”.
Cold Feet star James Nesbitt confessed that the treatment has helped to transform his career.
He admitted: “I think I look at least five years younger due to the hair transplants and it has definitely helped my career.
“I was keen to get it done before going on Celebrity Big Brother so my hair would look great on the show.”
Save our Summer this week also features Melanie C, Wayne Bridge, Jessica Ennis-Hill and the Black Eyed Peas.
*Peter Crouch: Save Our Summer will air at 9:25pm, BBC One tonight.
