Ickle Dec has definitely had something done. A year or so ago he was going very thin, now he has a luxuriant barnet. My thinking here is a 'weave/strand by strand' whatever they call it?
I can't believe everyone is mentioning Dec without Ant!

That guy has the most ridiculous hair I have ever seen. I don't even notice his face - he is just a forehead!

We have a definitive measurement of its size - 11cms according to Keith Lemon on Celebrity Juice! Embarrassingly, Ant estimated it was 5cm. Delusion.

LOL - don't watch that but really need to seek out that video!

Glad I am not the only one who only sees a forehead. 5cm - more like inches!

Anyone see Tony Blackburn's wig recently? Worst ever.

He did a comedy stand up for comic relief and his wig was lop-sided and the hair looked like horse's hair. LOL.

Do a You Tube search for his comedy stand up.

It's blatantly obvious that Cliff Richard wears a wig. You can see his bald head under the strands of hair that come down over his forehead. I'd bet Cliff's bald on top. Maybe he's ashamed/embarrassed of being bald. If he is, fair enough. He might admit to being bald one day.

The top part of Cliffs definitely looks like a wig: http://www.topnews.in/light/files/Cliff-Richard_0.jpg

Yep, it doesn't match the rest of his hair. I'd definitely say it's a wig.

You really need to watch the whole show, it was by far the funniest thing I saw on tv last year!

Part 1 starts here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YT5XHYD-8vw, and part 2 is where Ant gets his forehead measured and we find out that
he has body dismorphia!

You also find out something very interesting about Dec during this segment, and it's not about his hair....

Hmm, can't seem to edit my post anymore. Was going to add that coincidentally Ant got some stick about his fivehead on twitter tonight, but he gave as good as he got!

@terj1188: A what do u feed your forehead?? Your bullshit! A (Ant)

You'd think they'd learn to buy a wig that's the same colour as the real hair.

Cliffs is a good example in that photo as his real hair at the sides is dark brown but the wig is a few shades lighter.

That's one I wouldn't have ever suspected but if you look closely it does look as though the top is separate from the sides.

Jordan definitely a rug wearer. It's a bloody good one though.

It's a good one, but you can still just tell that it's a wig.

David Hamilton used to have hair like shredded wheat, now he has a thick grey hair, which makes him unrecognisable from what he used to look like.

Just did a Google image search for "David Hamilton" and loads of pics of naked women appeared.

Having met all of the following in the past 5 years, I would say:

Tony Blackburn - it's his real hair at the back and it always sticks out, but a syrup on top.

Cliff - Thinnning at the front, but his real hair,

David Hamilton - obviously a wig, but quite a good one.
If you didn't know, it looks quite realistic.

What I will say, is that they were all very friendly when I spoke to them.

Another one to add - Steve Harley of "Come up and See Me" fame.

True, but he had a really awful one a few years back
They also showed him on the Tommy Cooper show back in
the 70's in the last couple of weeks. Back then he was
wearing the famous comb-over that was popular at that time

Completely bald apparently, losing his hair after an accident. He has never made any secret of it.

It was a little hair raising (excuse the pun) during the post race coverage in Monaco where Jake Humphries, David Coulthard, Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel repeatedly through him in the Red Bull swimming pool, probably in the hope that his wig would come off. But like his wig the glue was good, the only thing he lost were his glasses!

I can't understand why men buy wigs for when they've lost quite a bit of hair and they're in their 60s. Might be insecurity perhaps. They might want to keep up the image of a stinking rich fella with a full head of hair.

Just watching The Jeremy Kyle Show (whilst waiting for the news I hasten to add) and it occurred to me - does Jezza wear a wig? It certainly looks like one at the sides.

Looks more like a transplant on the top to me.
