Alan Carr's dad was a soccer scout

Alan Carr admits he had to pinch himself when Kylie Minogue asked to meet him after a gig.

'When I went to see Kylie Minogue in concert someone tapped me on the shoulder and said: ‘Kylie would love to see you,' he says.

'So I went backstage and she lifted up her glasses and went: ‘It’s me, Alan,’ which is my catchphrase on The Friday Night Project.

'I’m a big fan, so that was wonderful.'

And Kylie's sister likes the comedian too.

'I bumped into Dannii [Minogue] and she asked me to sign my autobiography,' he says.

'It’s a bit of a wet dream for me to imagine Kylie and Dannii with a box of Black Magic watching The Friday Night Project.
