Hi folks, just a quickie to let you know that my new Summertime Specstacular comes to Channel 4 on the 17th August at 9.00pm.

Usual silliness, amazing prizes, musical performances and hilarious sketches!! Guests in the studio include Tulisa, Paloma Faith, Jonathan Ross, Labrinth, Melanie Sykes, Keith Lemon and many more. Join in the fun Channel 4 9.00pm 17th August – i’m so excited I’ve gone all hipstamatic in my photo!!


Alan’s Summertime Specstacular aired on 8th June and was a riot! Justin Bieber, David Walliams, Carol Vorderman, Dr Christian Jessen, the Rizzle Kicks, The Saturdays, the Made In Chelsea cast and many more joined Alan for silly games and a bit of a knees up at Channel 4 HQ.

If you missed Alan playing swingball with Justin Bieber; Alan as The Queen vs the Iron Lady; Alan and Jonathan Ross enjoying a staycation in Brighton; David Walliams looking sumptuous in a summer frock, a live link up with Russell Brand in LA, Alan as Noel Edmonds, Jamie Laing in a gold onesie(!), the Rizzle Kicks rocking the house with Mama Do The Hump… you get the picture…

Here’s Alan’s just after filming:

And Made In Chelsea’s Ollie Lock with a peek inside the Specstacular green room!

You can still watch the show for the next 19 days on 4oD (till July 8 2012). Hurry!

Plus a clip for you to watch whenever you like – Alan with a baffled Justin Bieber – awww 🙂
Specstacular playlist just for you. And all my photos from the night over on the Chatty Man Facebook page.

Watch out for the next Specstacular in August 2012 on Channel 4.

“I’m too shallow for demons…” Queen Alan talks to The Guardian

Catch Alan’s fabulous interview with Simon Hattenstone in The Guardian.

Alan Carr as the Queen

“The first time you come across Alan Carr, you notice one thing. He’s screamingly camp. Imagine the love child of Kenneth Williams and Frankie Howerd, and you might get close.  He says he’s never come out – there’s never been any need to. Gay activists have even accused him of being too gay; of giving homosexuals a bad name. 

The funny thing is, he says, he’s spent so much of his life trying to de-camp himself. He’d try to play football or deepen his voice, but there was always a little something that gave him away – the obsession with Wonder Woman, the laugh, the limp wrist, the love of Doris Day films, the attraction to Rock Hudson...”
