Last week, in a lengthy post, George confessed he has wanted to undergo the procedure for a long time because he was suffering from alopecia and a genetic condition. Posting on Twitter, the TV star wrote: "On the 26 April 2017, I will be travelling to the Juvida Clic, Skipton, to have a HAIR TRANSPLANT… This is something I've considered having done for years, I have always been convincing myself I'm not worried or it's not a big deal but really it is. I am only 23."

He continued to explain why he has suffered for hair loss, writing: "It's not only for my own confidence but also being in my line of work which is very image orientated and unfortunately I felt my hair (lack of) could affect my work. My hair loss comes from three things; alopecia (caused by a lot of stress and loss of a family member), genetics and head spinning, as the hair loss is not only a receding hair line but a strip down the centre of my head. I spend so much time doing my hair (well Lauren does) to try and cover up as much as I can and to make use of the hair I do have. I've decided I've had enough of that, I want my own hair, I am only 23 and balding seems like something which happens to older men so I decided I will go through with a transplant."
