Paddy McGuinness shouts at his hair to make it grow

Paddy McGuinness yells at his hair to give it motivation to grow.

The 45-year-old television presenter sports a short haircut, but has admitted he completes a bizarre ritual of shouting "grow" at the hair on his head every Sunday morning, in an effort to stop him from going bald.

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, he said: "I like to shout "grow" at my hair. It's my Sunday motivation each week. I do shout it at other body parts too - but to no luck."

Paddy claims to have found the unusual method of hair growth in a book about old wives" tales.

And it's not just his hair health that the star needs to get in check either, as he's been forced to get a whole host of "inoculations" in preparation for visiting the "far-flung" destinations laid out for the new series of "Top Gear", which he is co-presenting with Andrew Flintoff and Chris Harris.

He said recently: "I'm not very well travelled. Portugal is about as far as I've been. But now I've got to go to all these far-flung places. It's great but they've sent me a list of inoculations and there's stuff I've never heard of.

"There's something called Japanese enchilada, or something like that. We're not even going to Japan but I've got to get this injection."

"Top Gear" is set to return to screens next month, and Paddy recently admitted that despite his successful career, he still gets "nervous" before filming and has a special ritual to help calm him down.

He said: "I get nervous before everything I do. I always have done. I think it's good to be nervous, otherwise you can get complacent.

"Filming these shows can get a bit manic so, before every show, I try and have five minutes on my own to gather my thoughts - then out I go!"
