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.
