Alan Carr, 44, admitted he felt a little betrayed by his husband Paul Drayton, after the latter “went behind his back” and bought a cinema style TV for their front room. With the third lockdown well underway and we’re still unable to go on a trip to the cinema, it seems Paul was keen to introduce a home entertainment centre to the comfort of their living room, despite reservations from the comedian.
My husband Paul [Drayton] went behind my back and bought a massive TV, so our front room is like an Odeon and reverberates when the sound kicks in
Speaking about the issue in a recent interview, Alan was less than impressed by the deceit.
“My husband Paul [Drayton] went behind my back and bought a massive TV, so our front room is like an Odeon and reverberates when the sound kicks in,” he sighed.
And if that wasn’t enough to contend with, he added: “Our three dogs sit on the settee and wipe their mouths on the cushions, while their comfy dog box is immaculate.”
While on the topic of all things TV, Alan also revealed the real reason behind turning down BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing every year is because he doesn’t want to be a “joke” out on the dance floor.
The funny man insisted he wants to look “sexy” doing powerful routines like the Argentine tango, but he has concerns he wouldn’t be treated as a “serious artiste” if he did give in and take the plunge.
He spoke about how lockdown was treating him, mentioning his favourite show was Botched, which has encouraged him not to get plastic surgery.
But moving onto shows closer to home, he admitted he enjoyed last year’s socially distanced version of Strictly more than previous series.
“I enjoyed Strictly even more than usual,” he said.
“I’m a big fan of Bill Bailey anyway, and I was like, ‘He’s funny and talented.'”
Bill took home the winning trophy in the 2020 series alongside two-time winner Oti Mabuse, who won in 2019 with Emmerdale’s Kelvin Fletcher.

But it doesn’t look like we’ll see Carr on the ballroom floor anytime soon.
He carried on: “They always ask me to do Strictly and I say no because I want to be sexy doing the Argentine tango,” he giggled.
“I don’t want to be a joke.”
But after watching 56-year-old Bill take the plunge and walk away victorious, the funnyman weighed up the perks of appearing on the contest.

“Well, you lose weight, doing it,” he told Radio Times.
“I want to be treated as a serious artiste if I do.
“There’d be no mucking about. I’d be hot to trot, like Fred Astaire.”
