Anton also wrote about his hair transplant in a lengthy blog post on his official website. He said: "Image is very important to me. If, as a performer, you're known for having a good head of hair, should you start to lose it, you lose it very publicly and it can very much affect one's confidence.

"I realised that this was something I couldn't ignore, and of course, that it wasn't going to improve on its own. I started reading up about the various options for treatment, and it looked like a hair transplant could be the solution I needed."

The star added that after the procedure, he now feels like a "new man." He said: "I feel fantastic, like a new man – it’s given me so much more confidence when appearing on television or having my picture taken and I’m so glad I took action when I did."

"I would advise anyone who is concerned about hair loss to do their research carefully, as I did, before proceeding with treatment. You should also be totally confident that the team you choose to help you are fully qualified to do so."
