Jack P Shepherd showed off the results of his second hair transplant last month. And opening up to OK! in an exclusive interview with his girlfriend Hanni Treweek, the star reveals the real reason he opted for the procedure.
The actor, who plays David Platt in Coronation Street, says, "I didn’t do it because I was being trolled. When I watched myself back on screen, I noticed my hair was really thinning.
"I just thought there was the chance I could get it done and I thought it would make me look and feel better, so I went for it."
Jack has a particularly aggressive form of male pattern baldness, which is why his second operation was needed so quickly after the first one.

Opening up about the impact it's had on his mental health, Jack adds, "I feel more confident. There’s nothing worse than when you’re outside in the wind or on a rollercoaster and you get off and your hair’s all the over the shop. I don’t have that trouble any more."
Jack and Hanni recently celebrated their three-year anniversary. They met when Hanni worked in the script department of the ITV show.
“He just made me laugh so much. Finding a guy who makes you crack up is so important,” says 31-year-old Hanni, who now works with brands on Instagram.
Jack and Hanni fell in love quickly but took things slowly for the sake of the actor’s children, Nyla, 11, and six-year-old Reuben, from a previous relationship.
“We were together for about a year before they met. You don’t want to introduce a new partner to small children too soon,” Jack tells us. "I was a bit apprehensive at first because I hadn’t introduced them to a girlfriend before. I was worried Hanni would end up like a Disney villain and would be seen as a horrible stepmum."

"I wasn’t sure how it was going to go down but Nyla took to Hanni immediately – they both love fashion and make-up. Reuben liked her straight away too and they quickly started asking if Hanni would be there when I picked them up."
And Hanni admits while she was nervous to take on the role as stepmum, the children have brought her so much joy.
She explains, "I was never surrounded by kids so it was very new. The responsibility was huge but they bring you so much happiness and love. We took things slowly as I had my reservations – Jack’s in the public eye, he’s a father and we also worked together.
"But it was worth it as we just celebrated three years together. I trusted my gut and I knew I really liked him. He took good care of me at the start. He still does."
