Alan Carr has been offered the opportunity to be turned straight for a US reality TV show
Alan Carr has been offered the opportunity to be turned straight for a US reality TV show.
The gay 'Chatty Man' host was invited to hook up with Stateside group such as 'Straight To Jesus' - who believe homosexuality is an illness that can be cured - but turned down the offer, branding such organisations as "nutters".
He said: "I've been asked to go to America and make a programme about those nutters who claim they can turn you straight.
"I'm like, 'Those people aren't nice, I'm not encouraging them'. And can you imagine if they succeeded? I wouldn't have an act."
The 35-year-old comedian also ruled out appearing on any British reality TV shows - such as 'I'm A Celebrity . Get Me Out Of Here!' - because he doesn't fancy eating "crocodile penis".
Alan added in an interview with Attitude magazine: "I wouldn't do reality TV. I don't want to be sat in the jungle eating a crocodile's penis.
"There was talk of an all-gay version of 'The Farm', and I just know they wanted it to be me holding on to a cow going, 'How do you drive this thing?', with Graham Norton and Julian Clary going, 'Oh, he's mad!'"
