Corrie’s Alan Halsall reveals he’s undergoing second hair transplant

He first underwent the procedure in 2016

Alan Halsall has revealed he’s undergoing a second hair transplant.

The Coronation Street actor, 36, first underwent the procedure in 2016 after feeling self-conscious about his receding hairline.

Alan said he was thrilled with the results and will return to his surgeon on Tuesday (March 12) to have further work done.

Alongside a mirror selfie of his hair, Alan wrote: “Off for transplant no2 tomorrow can’t wait. Hope you’re on good form @bessamafarjo. (sic)”

He then asked his fans to ask him any questions they had.

When asked why he decided to tell his fans he’s undergoing the procedure again, Alan said: “Why not? Since I had my first a few years ago I’ve spoken with so many men who have confidence issues etc because of their hair, maybe this will let some of them know they have options and people have it done all the time.

“It’s not something to be ashamed of.”

When asked if the procedure hurts, Alan said: “From what I remember of my first… no. Some discomfort afterwards but that’s all.”

Another fan asked Alan why he doesn’t want to “go bald” as it would “suit” him, to which he replied: “Would it?? Thanks but I didn’t really want to and found a solution I’m much happier with.”

Over the past year, Alan has completely overhauled his look following his split from ex-wife Lucy-Jo Hudson.

Last year, the actor – who plays Tyrone Dobbs in the soap – opened up to The Sun about how he achieved his slimmed-down bod.

He said: “I’ve had a PT (personal trainer) for about four/five months. I’ve been coming to the gym for a few years now.

“I’ve transformed myself a little bit and people have seen that. I have a pre-workout meal, I work out, then I have a post-workout meal or a swim and a steam.

“I can come here and learn my lines. You can pretty much spend the day here.”

Following his split from Lucy-Jo, with whom he shares five-year-old daughter Sienna-Rae, Alan has apparently found love again.

After Lucy-Jo was attacked by a small minority of snide trolls after sharing an adorable picture of her new man, fellow actor Lewis Devine, cuddling up to Sienna on a recent dream holiday to Mexico, she set the record straight.

She said: “Well there’s some cruel people in the world! Has anyone ever told you guys that if you’ve nothing nice to say then don’t say anything at all.

“Alan has moved on, Sienna’s met her, and all is good! So please stop following me if you don’t like my posts! Life goes on after divorce.”

Excited fans are convinced Alan is enjoying a romance with former co-star Tisha Merry, after the pair have appeared in several social media pictures together.

However, unnamed sources close to Alan told The Sun that he and Tisha are “just good friends”.
