What a week it's been. After the amazing triumph at Anfield (4-1, count 'em) I was lucky enough to meet one of Liverpool's players after the game. Dirk Kuyt was there so I put my arm around him and he happily agreed to look uncomfortable. He's already becoming an Anfield legend in my eyes.
Fast forward 24 hours and Kuyt is replaced by Ken - another legend. Bill Roach (cos his real name isn't Ken as I was told before the interview) has been on 'The Street' for 47 years. That's a long, long time. We had a lovely chat in his dressing room during our visit. We talked about life at Corrie, olives, service stations, and a terrible loft incident involving Adam Rickitt.
Here's a picture of me and Ken - he's the one with the hair. I'm the one who looks amazed.
If your internet can handle it, check out another picture down here - it's me and Kuyt:
After stopping off at Emmerdale on Monday, today we paid a visit to Brookside Close - take a look at this video as I show you around...
All this week I've been switching on Christmas lights during our tour round the north of England - starting in Leeds (photos) on Monday, and in Liverpool (photos) today. Here's some video we took of the big switch-on at Alder Hey hospital:
Tomorrow morning I'll be somewhere in Manchester giving away more tickets for Gag Idol!
We've just come off stage from Gag Idol in Liverpool - here's some in-depth analysis of how the evening went from me and guest judge Yvette Fielding:
You can also see the surreal photos here.
So far we have been to Emmerdale and filmed what can only be described as a video. It employed acting skills.
Last night was a real highlight though. We went to the actual pub where the actual Rob DJ does the actual Monday night pub quiz. I was playing with Chris and his dad, and to cut a long story short we didn't win. We all think Carrie was cheating...
Today we did the show from Leeds and afterwards we visited Emmerdale, home of the well-known TV soap.
We took over the Woolpack pub with hilarious - and dramatic - results. Watch and enjoy:
So much news to blog about!
First of all, hello to everyone who was at the Big Brother party last night. Despite how sad Chris made it sound this morning on the show I had a great time. If you ARE the type of person who’d like a dinner date with one of the Big Brother lot like Charley or Shabnam firstly here’s a hug, and secondly good luck to you.
Hey bloggers and bloggettes! Well to add to Dave's bum waxing experience here’s a chance to hear that Cesc Fabregas I'm the only gay in the village again!!!
I went up to the Tree House School to have a chat - to my surprise William Gallas was also there as was Matt Lucas from Little Britain - he's massive gooner so was more than happy to help Arsenal out with some of their charity stuff..And it turns out Cesc is a massive little britain fan! Although apparently Phillipe Senderos does it better…we'll have to wait and see if we can get that for you!!
Anyway despite him obviously playing for Arsenal which I had to forgive him for, maybe for about 30 minutes at least - he was a lovely chap! Happy to have a chin wag about most things - mainly sitting in his boxers playing X box like Chris (I have to say Cesc his pants a nicer image than Chris in his!!!) and his fav tv shows..
So it finally happened then. Yesterday I went to the Celebrity Scissorhands studio for my bum wax appointment with our very own Aled. In addition to him removing the hair from my backside with hot wax and carpet tape, he also invited in some of his coiffure colleagues to have a good gawp and also to have a go in what became something of a free for all.
Hello! I'm Alan Carr and here's how I rated the team:
Hello blog fans.
It’s been a while since I’ve blogged properly on here using words and all that. I must admit I prefer video blogs because in my opinion they’re more fun, but can accept that every now and then a written one is just as good.
I also haven’t been around very much lately as I’ve been trying to hold 2 full time jobs down with the second job in the form of being a hairdresser albeit it on BBC3 for Children In Need.
Well. That was interesting. Firstly, i never wear a wig as i'm more than happy with my scalp. So the idea of putting a wig on and then getting some bloke to start cutting it is a bit odd. That's right - it must be celebrity scissorhands.
I went into the academy or "Aledemy" as i call it and had a "one to one" with Mr Strange. Hilariously he wasn't 100 per cent sure whether my red toupe was real at first. Then he kind of gave the game away by grabbing it off my head.
Been a while since I’ve done one of these so here goes. Celebrity Scissorhands is featuring heavily on the show at the moment, which must be the best blanket promotion that BBC3 has ever had...
That said, it is hilarious TV, especially the sight of our very own Vidal Sassoon breaking down in tears only to be comforted by Brandon Block. You couldn’t write this as the weird world of wash and blows continues to amuse and amaze.
Hello blogsters, hooray it's Friday! I love Fridays..
Blimey did I have an experience or what last night. If you listened to the show this morning, you would know that I was the first 'victim' from the team to risk Celebrity Scissor hands. I went in thinking I was going to have a facial and ended up coming out with a hair cut....I still can't work out how it happened.
