Strictly star reveals they’ve had hair transplant

They're thrilled with the results

Strictly Come Dancing’s Anton Du Beke has revealed he’s had a hair transplant.

The 51-year-old told The Mirror that he had the £10,000 operation after watching back old routines and noticing his thinning barnet.

“I was looking at photos and images of myself on television and saw it was going a bit thin at the front,” he explained.

“I’d cover it with make up and make sure I didn’t stand under certain lights.”

After advice from Cold Feet’s James Nesbitt, Anton headed to a clinic in Dublin to have the procedure.

“Immediately after having it done, I was delighted.

“I feel 25 again. It’s given me so much more confidence.”

Although he admitted that no one else spotted he’d had the transplant done, he was so delighted with the results, he’s ended up telling everyone about it!

Anton was eliminated from this year’s Strictly last weekend after he and partner Ruth Langsford faced the dance off against Jonnie Peacock and Oti Mabuse.

The pro dancer has since faced speculation this will be his last series.

Speaking to Loose Women, Anton dismissed the reports, saying: “No, never, never, never, never, never.

“Even if they don’t ask me back I’m still turning up.”

Strictly without Anton? It just wouldn’t be the same.

He also added that he was gutted to have left the contest: “I was very, very disappointed because I thought you had more weeks in you but it’s so final.”

The star is now releasing an album of swing songs called From The Top. What a multi-talented man!
