Alan Carr has revealed how important it is for him to keep touring following the end of his marriage to Paul Drayton.
The Chatty Man star and best friend to Rolling In The Deep singer Adele split from his ex-husband at the beginning of this year, after a 13-year relationship.
While people had questioned whether Alan would still go ahead with his latest comedy tour following his break-up, he explained that getting up on stage and performing night after night has been like ‘therapy’.
Speaking to Adil Ray and Charlotte Hawkins on Thursday’s Good Morning Britain about his Regional Trinket tour, which is running until December, the comedian said: ‘I wrote the tour, and then it just didn’t make sense when we came out of lockdown because the marriage had broken down, so I was writing fresh on the go.
‘It’s very personal and it’s very raw, but it’s going down really well.’
Alan insisted that he wouldn’t cancel any of the dates due to his relationship ending.
‘I need it,’ he told the presenters. ‘And I get the impression that people just want a laugh and I do see it as therapy. I just get on with it, you know?’
What a trooper! We love you, Alan!
Alan and Paul tied the knot in 2018, with Adele officiating their intimate nuptials in LA.The pair had already been together a decade before the ceremony.
However, in January this year, Alan and Paul announced that they had decided to end their marriage.
‘They have jointly and amicably made the difficult decision to divorce and go their separate ways,’ a joint statement read at the time.
‘We request that their privacy is respected at this sensitive time.’
Since then, Alan has been open about his marriage ending, and recently joked how he has custody over Adele.
Appearing on 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown, he said: ‘Obviously, people want to know about… we’ve divvied up our celebrity friends.
‘I get custody of Adele. Paul gets Gok [Wan] at the weekend.’
‘We’re still friends,’ he added. ‘I know he’s taken half of everything. But the one thing he can’t take is my dignity. Am I right?’
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
