He revealed last summer that he’s undergone a hair transplant and had his teeth fixed.
And viewers of Jimmy Carr’s new show, I Can See Your Voice, were taken aback by the comedian’s new appearance on Saturday.
Looking dapper in a blue suit, show panellist Jimmy, 48, proudly showed off his sparkling new teeth, fuller locks and more defined facial features, but fans were left asking: ‘Why does Jimmy Carr look so strange and different, what’s he done?’
Shock: Viewers of 48-year-old Jimmy Carr’s new show, I Can See Your Voice, were taken aback by the comedian’s new appearance on Saturday
As the show progressed, more viewers took to Twitter to express their confusion over Jimmy’s new look.
Another wrote: ‘Jimmy Carr’s face is so distracting,’ while a third quipped: ‘Surely the biggest thing to guess on #caniseeyourvoice is who’s had more work done? Amanda or Jimmy Carr.’
Others focused solely on the TV star’s new mane, with Twitter users split on whether or not they approved of Jimmy’s fuller head of hair.
‘I just can’t cope with Jimmy’s new hairline,’ noted one, while another said: ‘Jimmy’s hair transplant is [flames]. I do kind of miss the quiff though.’
I Can See Your Voice follows two players going head to head to win a cash prize by guessing if the mystery singers standing before them can or can’t sing, without hearing them perform a single note.

Jimmy has spoken candidly about the full extent of his makeover in the past.
Talking on Gabby Logan’s Midpoint podcast, Jimmy said he decided to make some tweaks to his appearance after feeling disappointed that he doesn’t look as good in real life as he does on television.
He said: ‘I got my teeth done, that’s the first thing I had done, they’re more than veneers. I got every tooth in my head done in one sitting.
Sharing their thoughts: As the show progressed, more viewers took to Twitter to express their confusion over Jimmy’s new look
‘I did 12 hours in the chair the first day, then 12 hours the second, it was like a three day thing where you’ve got temporary things on, it’s pretty full on.
‘I think they gave me Rohypnol intravenously into the vein and you’re kind of out of it and they do everything and you’re fine. It’s a dream-like haze, you’re in a weird space.’
Jimmy said he wants to maintain his looks rather than change them too much.
He said: ‘I think that thing of age is that people don’t really see what’s there, people are good at pattern recognition, that’s all they do, teeth and hair.
New look: In June Jimmy surprised viewers by unveiling the results of his hair transplant (left) after his hair began to ‘socially distance from his forehead’ (right before the transplant in 2018)
‘Maintaining is the thing, I don’t think there’s anything you can do plastic surgery wise, or augmentation wise, that makes you look better, you can just sort it stay the same, that’s what you can hope for.’
The TV personality said as well as these physical changes, he’s also been exercising lots and taking lots of protein pills and vitamins.
In October, the comedian addressed the topic again during an appearance on the Just For Laughs podcast.
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?’
Discussing his decision to undergo Botox, he said: ‘I was seeing a guy, getting a bit of Botox, and I was chatting to him and he said, ”Oh I do Simon Cowell”, and I went, ”Yeah I think I better leave”. ”What have you done… he looks like a melted candle”.’
