Paddy McGuinness has said he’s tempted to have a hair transplant after being left very impressed by Jimmy Carr’s.
The TV presenter, 47, gushed that the comedian’s new locks are ‘unbelievable’ while appearing on the Two Pints of Lager podcast.
He said: ‘The best one I have seen in the flesh – it was that good I thought to myself, “I’m going to get that done”, I got the number of the surgeon – it was Jimmy Carr.

‘It’s unbelievable, his hair is like an otter’s pelt. He said this fella he used doesn’t advertise, doesn’t do any of that, he’s under the radar.
‘I looked at it and I was like, “Now that is proper!”. Get it done when no one realises you need it. That’s when they work the best.’
Paddy continued that he’s been surprised to find out a few ‘lads in the business’ have had hair transplants as they’ve got lots of locks, according to The Mirror.
The father-of-three said he’d ‘never question’ they’ve had any treatments, adding that the key is to: ‘Do it before you’ve got to the full-on bald stage.’
New look: Comedian Jimmy, 48, has had quite the makeover in recent months, previously revealing he’s had his teeth fixed as well (seen in a trailer for BBC One game show last month)
Comedians Paddy and Jimmy are currently working on BBC One game show I Can See Your Voice together.
Last month, Jimmy revealed he has had his teeth fixed in a mammoth three day appointment at the dentist and has also undergone a hair transplant.
Talking on Gabby Logan’s Midpoint podcast, Jimmy said he decided to make some tweaks to his appearance after feeling disappointed that he doesn’t look as good in real life as he does on television.
He said: ‘I got my teeth done, that’s the first thing I had done, they’re more than veneers. I got every tooth in my head done in one sitting.

‘I did 12 hours in the chair the first day, then 12 hours the second, it was like a three day thing where you’ve got temporary things on, it’s pretty full on.
‘I think they gave me Rohypnol intravenously into the vein and you’re kind of out of it and they do everything and you’re fine. It’s a dream-like haze, you’re in a weird space.’
Jimmy said he wants to maintain his looks rather than change them too much.
He said: ‘I think that thing of age is that people don’t really see what’s there, people are good at pattern recognition, that’s all they do, teeth and hair.
‘Maintaining is the thing, I don’t think there’s anything you can do plastic surgery wise, or augmentation wise, that makes you look better, you can just sort it stay the same, that’s what you can hope for.’
Jimmy joked that he was considering transplanting pubic hair to his head when it came to his hair transplant.
He said: ‘The hair thing, I really researched it, I came up with Edward Ball at the Maitland Clinic down in Portsmouth. I went to all the places in Harley Street.
‘You go in there, front of office is immaculate and the most charming guy is selling it, the guy who is selling it has got good hair.

‘Then you meet the doctor who is doing it is a GP from somewhere who wants to make a few quid and goes, “I’ll do it.” No, you need a plastic surgeon who is qualified to do it. The guy I used is a plastic surgeon and has an aesthetic thing.
‘They get it from the back of the head. You shave your head fully, which I loved, I kind of suited a shaved head, which surprised me.’
Gabby told him: ‘Your hair’s gone a bit chestnutty?’
Jimmy replied: ‘It’s got a bit of something. I could do with dyeing it I suppose. I wasn’t receding. I’ve had the same hairline since I was 17, I had a big widow’s peak. I looked like a vampire’s accountant. It was just post lockdown I got it done.’
The TV personality said as well as these physical changes, he’s also been exercising lots and taking lots of protein pills and vitamins.
