It's all part of the disguise .

Rob Brydon . I remember seeing him when his hair was practically non existant .

Now by a miracle he has a full head of hair .

It must be hell in the very hot weather having a wig glued to your head . What must be more uncomfortable is I've seen Terry wear a cap over his wig when he plays golf .

I wonder do they take them off when they get home .

I know Fred Astaire used only wear his wig only when filming . Other times he'd remove it .
Didn't a Rob Brydon have a hair transplant?

I didn't know they glued them on

Or do you mean being forced to keep it on no matter how uncomfortable

Most wig and toupee wearers are blind to what is really in the mirror reflection.

For some reason they cannot see what we see.
Yep, those with cancer, eating disorders, alopecia, thyroid problems, lupus and PCOS really are a deluded bunch.

Thankfully they have you to point and laugh at them.

Oh here we go again, the PC bunch are on board.

Nobody is taking the pee out of people with an illness, it's the vain people we're mocking. It's quite simple to understand really.

He doesn't claim not to have and I believe it is. He is not hiding the fact that he was balding - it would be pretty damn difficult when the 'evidence' is there for all to see in Gavin and Stacey and so on.

What does it matter if he is happy with it. It looks good anyway and he has suffered all his life from his skin. Let him be happy with his luxuriant locks I say. David Walliams, his friend, makes a joke about it in his (Walliams') autobiography and I hardly think it's a secret.

Yes. It's also easy to understand that Showbiz people are bound to be vain to a greater or larger extent. It is also easy to understand that keeping up appearances is more of a necessity, struggle, keeping in work and so on. Even Alan Titchmarsh has been reported as saying all the main male presenters currently in work have a good/reasonable head of hair.

As for Melvyn Bragg, I reckon he has always had a little too much if anything. Perhaps he could donate some of it.

With Cliff Richard being in the news a bit today it's clear to see what a dodgy wig wearer he's been for years.

I suppose Kitty Webb could become the Default answer to a lot of topics?

A few weeks ago I would've reluctantly admitted the results of his latest round of plastic surgery didn't actually look too bad.... but now his face seems to be rejecting it, or something.

As for the syrup.... words fail me.

I was watching Sky News yesterday and during the adverts comedian Alistair McGowan popped up making a charity appeal.

At first I thought he was in character, as he was sporting a ridiculous hairpiece or transplant that was thick and parted in the middle, with hair floppy at the sides like Hugh Grant.

LOL.

More laughable as he's been balding back and front for years.

Anyone else seem him???

That's reassuring. So how about all those people who pretend that their faces are a multitude of different colours via the makeup bag ? Or those who pretend to be taller than they are by wearing shoes that assist the illusion ?

What about them? That's a normal part of life for women. We're talking mostly about men who wear stupid rugs on their heads and think it's convincing.

I don't know whether to laugh at him or cry for him.

I'd not considered it before but just saw Tony Blair on Newsnight and his thatch looks very odd.
