Alan Carr would rather see his talk show guests get drunk than reveal intimate secrets
Alan Carr likes his talk show guests to get drunk.
The 'Chatty Man' host prefers to have fun on the programme rather than interrogate celebrities about intimate moments in their lives.
He said: "People come on if they wanna have a laugh. If you wanna have a moment saying, 'This is where the man touched me' then my show's not the right place.
"But if you wanna see Rihanna throwing her heard back laughing, that's me. You can see a different side of someone without them breaking down.
"You can learn more from watching Cheryl Cole having a good laugh than hearing her saying, 'That mosquito bit me here' and sobbing about it.
"Sobbing doesn't equal good chat show. I'm not a journalist, I want them to come round my house and get drunk. We make them look good."
Alan also admitted he still refuses to have reality TV stars such as the cast of 'Geordie Shore' in 'Chatty Man' because he'd rather book "amazing" guests.
He added to The Sun newspaper: "I don't want those people on the show. I'm not dissing them, everyone's got to make a living. But there are amazing actors and singers who can move you who I'd rather have.
"Because of the influx of reality TV stars, the price of fame has dropped. The magazines are filled with people like Alex Reid and Chantelle Houghton, whereas the Angelina Jolies and Brad Pitts and David Beckhams drift away. You can't be like, 'Angelina, have you met Wolf?' "
