He posted, alongside the snaps: 'On Monday I went and had hair reconstruction surgery as this is something I have always wanted to do for myself as I have always been a bit self conscious of my hairline.
'I am currently in the healing process so cannot see my results yet but can already tell it’s going to look how I’ve always wanted.
