Alan Carr has revealed that he turned down an offer to host a reality television programme featuring gay pilots.
The comedian and chatshow host admitted that he was “stunned” to be asked to front Up, Up and a Gay. He also declined a second series titled Ten Gay Celebrities On A Farm,The Sun reports.
“That would have involved me learning to fly and flying around the world talking to other gay pilots,” Carr said. “The other one wanted to put ten gay celebrities on a farm. They just wanted me to be milking a cow squealing, aargh!”
The 34-year-old added that he is focusing on his upcoming nationwide Spexy Beast Live tour, which begins in Brighton on September 11.
“I have awards for my stand-up comedy,” he said. “I don’t want people to forget that. I just feel there’s so much trash about I have to go back on tour to prove myself again.”
