TAKE Thatch ... chart star Robbie Williams has admitted he has undergone a hair transplant.

The singer, who released an album called Take The Crown last year, said he had the work done because he was "bored" and did not even need it.

Williams, based in Los Angeles, made his admission during the recording of tonight's Graham Norton Show as part of a discussion about cosmetic surgery.

"I've lived in LA for a long time and they say, 'If you sit in a barber's shop for long enough you will get a hair cut'. Well, if you live in Los Angeles for long enough you're going to get some surgery," he said.

"I've had a thatch done, I'll tell everyone now. I didn't even need it, that's the weirdest thing. I had like three months off and got bored so thought, I'll go in."

The star, who has recently been sporting a Pepe Le Pew-style streak in his hair, indicated it had been enhanced around the front of his hairline, rather than all over.

"I just got some at the sides and front done," Williams told presenter Norton during the show, to be screened at 10.35pm on BBC One.



"That's what I am saying about Los Angeles, it's weird," he said.

Robbie added: "Teddy was born 13 months ago and all of a sudden I got homesick.

"I want her to have British sensibilities and for her to understand irony."

On writing certain songs for her, he added that he wanted to do something for someone other than himself.

"I've been very selfish in the past and have had everything done for me, so I was terrified I wasn't up to looking after this little person so Go Gentle sealed my promise to her that I would," he added.

Recently, Robbie told Facebook fans that he was afraid his daughter would grow up to meet someone like him .

Robbie said he had also rekindled his love of touring as a performer and being on the road.

Other guests on the show included David Tennant, Matt Smith, Emma Thompson and Jimmy Carr.
