I forgot to mention GMTV's John Stapleton. It didn't dawn on me until about 8 or 9 months ago but the top is definitely (allegedly ) a wig. Have a close look next time he's on.
Its NOT a wig for gods sake.

That man's name is an inspiration! I wonder if TW's totally bald? I have noticed the subtle greying of the temples. I wonder if he uses Tippex to colour it in? Wiggex, maybe?

A lot of the sides look real to me so I reckon he's just bald on top but adds a bit to the sides just to blend it all in.

I actually don't think Terry wears a wig at all. If you notice his hair has changed colour and consistency over the years and now he has an obvious bald patch on the back of his head. If it was a wig surely that would be covered up?

Are you joking? It's common knowledge it's a wig.

I think Graham Norton has definitely got added extensions to his hair, and I also think Will Young has too.

I remember back in the days when Bono had a mullet he won a Brit award and the camera angle showed he had a large bald spot - he didn't seem to hide it.

20 years later and about 50 hats and tadaa - a full head of hair

Nicolas Cage too I think.

It's a touchy subject as I would like to turn the tide on my receding hairline but I will remain wigless - for now

Nope not joking. I know everyone talks about it being a wig but that doesn't mean it is. It just doesn't make sense to me that someone would wear a wig that leaves them with a large obvious bald spot. *shrug*

I bet they all stick them on the radiator when they have been out in the rain!

They all need a Bronson from Grange Hill moment, imo!

I'd never thought about Bono but yeah I guess he has had some miracle treatment done.

I will try and find a lovely pic of him and rug (spinning hopefully).

LOL he has the King of the Wigs alright...it's appalling. We had the short version of his Italian course at home so I was listening to it for a while walking to and from work before a trip to Italy last year....he really was narky!

No, he didn't. He was thin on top and combed it over.

Oh my god, call me stupid if you want, but I genuinely didn't know he wore a wig. He's one of my heroes. Mainly because he looks like my dad and I was very confused when I was very very small.

apparently when the stone roses were at the height of the fame in 1989, they were offered the chance to go on wogan.

the band weren't warm to the idea, but decided to go on when ian brown came up with the idea that it would be really funny to appear on the show and TAKE OFF WOGAN'S WIG.

sadly the producers of wogan got wind of the idea, and stopped the roses from appearing. and we all missed this piece of epochal television.

Did anybody see The Frank Skinner Show a couple of years ago when Bruce Forsythe was a guest? The Skinnerettes played Wig Wam Bam as he walked on.

The best wig in showbiz belongs to Bruce Springstein.

Gosh I'm slacking too. I've always prided myselfy on being an excelllent wig spotter, but I always thought Terry had a good head of thick Irish hair. Yes dyed obviously, just a bad comb over that looks thick at the parting. I will have to take a closer look!
