A PLASTIC surgery addict dubbed ‘Britain’s vainest man’ has undergone a £2.5k hair transplant – because he wants to look like Joey Essex.
Sam Barton – who has spent £50,000 so far in his quest to look like the TOWIE star – had a full hair transplant after a mystery benefactor stumped up the cash.
He set up a crowdfunding page to pay for the procedure – and a wealthy businesswoman got in touch to bankroll the whole thing.
Sam, from Birmingham, West Mids. said: “I wasn’t bald but my hair was thin – I am getting old and ugly so I will going under the knife to look as best as I can.
“Most people don’t understand why I asked random people online to pay for my surgery, but why not? If you don’t ask, you won’t get.
The self-confessed surgery addict doesn’t plan on stopping any time soon – despite already had, veneers, Botox as well as fillers in his cheeks, lips, jaw and chin.

He added: “If there is one thing, I love more than surgery, it is money and the only thing I love more than money is easy money.
“Evidently there are people out there who are willing to pay, the woman who funded my hair transplant messaged me.
“She is very successful and said she admires my bravery and honesty then she offered to pay for it all.”
