The Coronation Street star kept his hair transplant covered up with a flatcap as he enjoyed a day at the races with cobbles legend Michael Le Vell.

Alan looked cheerful as he enjoyed a day at the races with his co-star Michael –  but he kept his new mop of hair covered up.

Michael, who looked relaxed after his 12 month bankruptcy ordeal came to an end, turned up looking dapper in a long suit jacket and flat cap too.

The Corrie actor's weren't the only stars at the festival today – Rod Stewart and his wife Penny Lancaster were also there to watch the races.

Horse racing fan Georgia Toffolo was also there to catch the action.

The 36-year-old shared a picture of his beloved dog as well as one of him posing with his hand over his mouth as he debuted his drastic chop on his Instagram story.

He wrote: "Thanks for all your lovely messages, everything went well and I feel great aside from looking like a naughty 90's pop star."

The pictures also show the results of Alan's second hair transplant that he's undergone over the past few days.

The actor confessed that he was going to get the procedure during a live Q&A with fans on Monday.

He said: "Off for transplant no2 tomorrow can't wait. Hope you're on good form @bessamfarjo."

When asked why he told fans, Alan said: "Why not? Since I had my first a few years ago I've spoken with so many men who have confidence issues etc because of their hair, maybe this will let some of them know they have options and people have it done all the time.

"It's not something to be ashamed of."

Asked if his first hair transplant hurt, Alan added: "From what I remember of my first… no.

"Some discomfort afterwards but that's all."

Alan underwent his first hair transplant in 2016 after feeling self-conscious about his receding hairline.

It didn't take long for eagle-eyed Corrie viewers to notice his fuller-looking barnet and he confessed about getting it done almost two years afterwards.
