Jimmy Carr, 48, details his lockdown transformation after splashing out on a hair transplant, ‘a bit of Botox’ AND a new set of teeth
Jimmy Carr has offered fans an insight into the expensive measures he’s gone to transform his appearance.
The comedian – who surprised fans by unveiling the results of his hair transplant in June – admitted he’s had ‘a bit of work done’ during lockdown to look younger, including ‘a bit of Botox’ and getting a new set of teeth.
Jimmy, 48, has been incredibly open about his decision to splash out on the procedures to improve his appearance as he approaches his 50th birthday, joking: ‘What else are you going to do in lockdown?’

Speaking on the Just For Laughs, Jimmy said: ‘I’ve had a lot of work done. I got my teeth knocked out and put back in.
‘And then I had a hair transplant in the lockdown, which I didn’t particularly need, but what else are you going to do in lockdown?’
Discussing his decision to undergo Botox, he said: ‘I was seeing a guy, getting a bit of Botox, and I was chatting to him and he said, ”Oh I do Simon Cowell”, and I went, ”Yeah I think I better leave”. ”What have you done… he looks like a melted candle”.’

Back in July Jimmy surprised viewers by unveiling the results of his hair transplant on Peter Crouch: Save Our Summer, speaking openly about undergoing the procedure.
During the show, Jimmy joked that his hair had ‘socially distanced from his forehead’ and that he looked like a ‘snooker-playing vampire’ referencing his past signature raven-coloured quiff.
Explaining the procedure, he said: ‘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.’

Following the compliment from Sporty Spice, Jimmy went on to reveal that he’s also had his teeth done.
Last year Jimmy told Jonathan Ross he was considering having a hair transplant, saying: ‘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.’
