Alan Carr envious of James Corden's success
Alan Carr is jealous of James Corden's success.
The chat show host admitted seeing the British star conquer America with 'The Late Late Show' has made him envious and he is lining up some high-profile guests for his own new UK primetime programme 'Alan Carr's Happy Hour'.
He told The Sun: "I've been getting a bit envious of James. We want to create that buzz. I'm going to America to film some stuff with a big star over there."
Alan's former show 'Chatty Man' is on an indefinite hiatus but he insists it was not axed.
He fumed: "The thing that p****s me off is that I'm really honest, so I would say it had been axed if it had been axed.
"I am not too proud to be axed, but it gives off the wrong impression because it wasn't. I just wanted to do something different. I don't know what I am going to get from two more series of a chat show because it's the same old, same old."
And the new primetime pre-watershed slot means Alan will have to make some drastic changes.
He quipped: "It's a bit insulting that people are saying it's tamer because it's insinuating that I can't do an hour's show without getting hammered. I mean, it will be hard, but I can do it - and I will have a hip flask!"
