He surprised fans after revealing he’d had a hair transplant last summer, before later announcing he’d had ‘a little bit of Botox’ and new teeth.
And Jimmy Carr, 48, appeared to be in great spirits as he regaled his friend with chat while on a walk in London on Saturday.

A pair of blue jeans completed the rare casual look for the often suited-up presenter, who accessorised with a pair of navy trainers and aviator sunglasses attached to his collar.
Jimmy styled his locks in a signature side part, revealing a hint of grey at the roots.
The 8 Out of 10 Cats presenter was accompanied by a bearded friend, who wore a grey tee, dark jeans and slung a jacket over his shoulder on the sunny afternoon.

Grilled by Maya Jama on Peter Crouch’s Save our Summer in June, he joked that his hair had ‘socially distanced from his forehead’ – and that he looked like a ‘snooker-playing vampire’.

‘Basically I had enough hair, it was just in the wrong place. It was a bit of redistribution.’
The funny man then admitted in October that he’s had ‘a bit of work done’ during lockdown to look younger, including ‘a bit of Botox’ and getting a new set of teeth.

Jimmy has been incredibly open about his decision to splash out on the procedures to improve his appearance as he approaches his 50th birthday, joking: ‘What else are you going to do in lockdown?’
Speaking on the Just For Laughs, Jimmy said: ‘I’ve had a lot of work done. I got my teeth knocked out and put back in.
‘And then I had a hair transplant in the lockdown, which I didn’t particularly need, but what else are you going to do in lockdown?’

Britons have long thought of the Cambridge graduate as one of the Britons’s top comedy draws.

But earlier this month, a study showed the dapper TV personality was in fact the country’s funniest man.
A study of 120 volunteers found participants laughed out loud for a total of four minutes and 46 seconds while watching an hour of Jimmy’s stand-up show.
It was enough to beat Car Share’s Peter Kay (4m, 38s), Jack Whitehall (3m 59s) and Michael McIntyre (3m 53s).
Jimmy, who was working in marketing at Shell during the 1990s, left his old career behind to become a comedian in 2000.
