Alan Davies, 55, has admitted he thinks he was drunk at the wheel on the school run yesterday. The comedian told listeners about the situation on his The Tuesday Club podcast earlier today.
The weekly podcast is concerned with all things Arsenal FC and saw Alan and his guests reflecting on the club’s weekend win.
The football team beat Tottenham Hotspur in the North London derby on Saturday.
Speaking on Monday evening, he told his listeners how he had a “really corking hangover”.
The Jonathan Creek star admitted he had got so drunk following the win, he thinks he was still intoxicated the next day.
The dad-of-three said: ”I’ve had a rotten day. Dear oh dear.
“I was up on the school run early but still, really, still drunk I think.
”The hangover didn’t really begin ’til about 11.30 in the morning.”
When his co-host said it seemed a “lovely image”, Alan replied: “I didn’t see any parents, I drop at distance.”
He then recalled his night on Sunday as he admitted: “They threw us out of the pub.
“I went to go to the loo, we were sitting outside.
”And when I went to go in all the chairs were on the tables and the bar was absolutely spotless and the staff looked really hacked off.”
Alan is married to Katie Maskell who he shares three children with.
The star is a huge Arsenal supporter and has produced 181 episodes of his weekly podcast about the club.
Elsewhere, Alan is appearing on the latest series of Taskmaster with Greg Davies and Alex Horne.
The comedian is competing against Desiree Burch, Guz Khan, Morgana Robinson and Victoria Coren Mitchell in the much-loved show.
This sees him undertaking several unique tasks as he tries to wrack up points in the weekly show.
Speaking to Whattowatch.com, the QI star opened up about why he decided to join the series.
He said: “I was very aware of it, friends of mine have done it, so I’ve watched episodes. But once I was approached about it, I started watching more.
“Then you have some trepidation because you might make a fool of yourself, which, of course, is very much the idea.
“But you don’t feel like you’re being victimised, or set up to fail.
“It would be boring if everybody failed at everything, and it would be boring if everybody succeeded at everything, so that’s why I think it’s so clever.”
