I really like the no-nonsense approach he informed Free Girls’s Ruth Langford he’d popped off to the Hair Restoration clinic in Blackrock, Dublin (massive plug so he will need to have received a reduction) and so they ‘took it off the again and replanted it on the entrance’.
‘It is all mine, I simply had it shifted about’.

Truly, Anton is being considerably economical with the truth- he had a hair transplant just a few years in the past, and revealed all on Channel 4’s Steph’s Packed Lunch in 2021.
