Alan Carr reveals lockdown pressures tempted his husband to drink again

COMEDIAN Alan Carr has revealed the pressure of lockdown tempted his husband to drink again.

Alan, 44, and hubby Paul Drayton have spent the time on their farm, outside London.

They married in 2018 and Paul, 47, went to rehab in the same year to get sober.

But Alan said: “It’s been tough for Paul during lockdown. He’s been saying, ‘Oh, shall we get a bottle?’ and I say, ‘No, we’re not getting any rosé wine in’.

“He’s been so good and I’m so proud of him.”

Speaking on The Kelly Hoppen podcast, Alan said he is keen to bring back his hit Channel 4 show Chatty Man, which was axed four years ago.

Alan said: “I like eating and drinking, but it was ridiculous before – we were cracking open a bottle of Rosé because it was a Monday.

"We were out of control. It was a laugh, but looking at Paul, sometimes the party has to stop.”

After going teetotal to support his husband, Alan admitted he boozes occasionally now.

He said: “I enjoy a drink and I have it on special occasions now, it’s a real treat for me.”

He added: “ With lockdown and the rise of podcasts it’s reawakened my chatting.

"It’s made me want to chat more to people, and I’m quite good at it and I like chatting to people.”
