Pop megastar Robbie Williams is to have a second hair transplant to ‘thatch’ his balding barnet.
Flashing his thinning locks on ex-footballer Clarke Carlisle’s mental health podcast the Old Before I Die singer admitted his wing backs are pushing’ on and they’ve ‘left big gaps at the back’.
Proudly revealing he had won Smash Hits magazine’s best hair award in 1994
he said 26 years on he feared he was losing his locks.
The Angels singer told Clarke And Carries Place, the podcast the former Professional Footballers’ Association chairman runs with his wife: “Let me talk you through where I stand with my hair right now. Man is going thin on the top. Look at that.”
Robbie, aged 46, then sank his chin to his chest to flashing his balding bonce on the webcam.
Shocked Clarke, aged 41, said: “Oh mate, your wing backs are pushing on.”
Laughing Robbie replied: “They really are. They are pushing on but they’ve left big gaps at the back. So I think I’m going to have a thatch. I think I’m going to thatch it.”
Carrie told Robbie he still had a decent head of hair and told her hubby to more supportive.
But the singer replied: “If you had a friend whose hair was deserting them like mine is you’d have to let them know.”
Robbie, who admitted every time he toured he felt so exhausted ‘he ended up in rehab or hospital’, has had a hair transplant before – when he did not need it.
In 2013 he told The Graham Norton Show he underwent the procedure while living in Los Angeles because he was ‘bored’.
He said on TV: “I’ve lived in LA for a long time and they say, ‘If you sit in a barber’s shop for long enough you will get a hair cut’.
“Well, if you live in Los Angeles for long enough you’re going to get some surgery. I’ve had a thatch done and I didn’t even need it. That’s the weirdest thing. I had three months off and got bored.”
Earlier this year he said he had stopped dying his hair because colouring it for the past decade had taken its toll.
“I have dyed my hair quite a few times and now my head is bereft of all the hair I used to have,” he said.
“There’s a certain age that you reach where you go, ‘I better stop dying this stuff’. You don’t want to have that auburny red tip at the end.
“You see the rock stars of yesterday do this and you go, ‘Oooh’. So what I’ve done is shave it all off.”
