Jack Whitehall told BBC Radio 5 live's Richard Bacon that he lost out to Daniel Radcliffe with the Harry Potter role and missed out on a part in a school play when he went up against Robert Pattinson.

The stand-up comedian, 24, has been nominated for the British Comedy Awards, the Edinburgh Comedy Awards and has done a series of sold-out tours.
