Jimmy Carr has revealed that he has undergone a transplant to stop his hair “socially distancing” from his forehead.
The comedian unveiled the results of his procedure during the recording of BBC One’s Peter Crouch: Save Our Summer, which airs on Saturday night.
Jimmy said he’d decided to have the transplant – which sees donor hairs taken from the back of a patient’s head and implanted in the front – as he believed he looked like a “snooker-playing vampire”.
Speaking to co-host Maya Jama, he says: “I tell you what I did, I went and had a hair transplant. I kinda had a look of... like a snooker-playing vampire.
“So what happened was my hair was socially distancing from my forehead and I’d had enough of it.”
He continues: “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.”
Last year, Jimmy revealed he wanted a hair transplant and joked to chat show host Jonathan Ross that he was considering an Elvis Presley style quiff.
He said: “We were talking about hair transplants. I want a proper Elvis quiff. I want to go big. Go big or go home.
“It’s showbusiness baby, let’s enjoy ourselves.”
Peter Crouch: Save Our Summer airs on Saturday at 9.35pm on BBC One.
