Alan Carr: I get typecast as camp
Alan Carr would love to branch out into movies but he's fed up of being typecast as camp.
The comedian told the Christian O'Connell Breakfast Show he is really keen to act, but he only gets offered stereotypical gay roles.
Alan said: "You open the script and it's like 'Oooh look at her roots' - listen I know I'm not going to play Taggart or Poirot but it's called acting isn't it, I know I'll never be the love interest or the action hero!"
The TV presenter recently interviewed Katie Price and told how he was keen to get her to behave as her wild alter-ego Jordan, so he attempted to get her drunk.
Alan said: "She's very guarded. You know how you used to get Katie Price 'Yeah yeah stick it up there'. I liked it when she was naughty and a bit rude but now every time she says something she says 'Oh no, cut that out' so it didn't really have a flow.
"I tried to get her drunk so we could get Jordan out instead of Katie because Jordan is the key to gossip. She started warming up at the end. We had a couple of Merridowns and she opened up."
