He said: “I’d love to write a cracking drama like ‘Six Feet Under’ or ‘The West Wing’ but I’m like one of those people who wants to be a painter but is too scared because they don’t think they’re good enough.”
Carr has enjoyed success as the host of Chatty Man and has admitted that he has enjoyed some guests more than others: “Who has been my favourite guest? Rihanna. She was fun and didn’t have a list as long as her arm of things you can’t talk about.
“Grace Jones was fabulous too, I asked her about the rumour that all she survived on in the 80s was cocaine and oysters and she said, ‘Yes darling.’
Perhaps someone should introduce her to Frankie Cocozza.
“My biggest nightmare are some of the younger Americans who’ve been media trained to death. I’d rather have someone like Courtney Love. She came on a little bit tipsy and told all her secrets and the audience really warmed to her.”
Chatty Man is now in its sixth series but has moved from Sunday night to Friday and back again, following wavering audience figures back in Spring of this year.
Could this be Alan’s way of priming us for a career change and the end of his quirky chat show?
