Gregg Wallace wants next 007 to be a ‘Baldy Bond’ as people are too ‘hair-ist’

Gregg Wallace wants the next James Bond to be a slaphead.

The MasterChef star, 56, reckons there aren’t enough baldies in TV shows and films.

He said: “I have a bald head and glasses and that’s quite unusual on TV at the moment.

“I’d love to see more bald guys on TV. Our television is far too hair-ist!

“And I think it’s about time we had a bald James Bond.

“That’s what I’m holding out for.”

Gregg is one of just a handful of bald men on primetime TV – with Harry Hill and Dominic Littlewood among the best known.

But the look has worked wonders for Gregg and even made him a sex symbol.

He said: “It’s my look. And my look doesn’t change. It’s the bald head and glasses.

“I have women flirting with me. If you’re on the television, you’ve got to accept that’s an ­occupational hazard.”

It comes MasterChef's Gregg opened up on his booze-filled past and admitted at his lowest points he was out of control.

Speaking to OK! Magazine as part of their Dry January campaign, Gregg opened up on how he overcame alcohol addiction and how he now manages his drinking.

He revealed to the publication how he would start his day drinking before lunch with a "couple of pints".

Gregg would then move on to a glass of wine – or big amounts – before he then finished off with a whisky.

The star also confessed he would sometimes "go to dinner drunk".

Gregg told OK! : "Then I’d carry on with more. I could do that sometimes for two or three days on the trot.

"Then I’d just collapse onto a sofa somewhere and sleep."

Gregg is back with a new series of MasterChef tomorrow at 9pm on BBC One.
