But when it comes to Christmas itself, Alan has very specific plans.

“Last year I had booked a lovely place in London and we were all going to get dressed up but of course that had to be cancelled.

“I just want to make it extra special as I really missed not being with my family last time.”

What is happening to Paul, husband of Alan Carr?

Alan’s Christmas wishes come after husband Paul revealed that he’s set to have a major operation before Christmas.

He said on Instagram that he’s suffering from a ‘chronic subdural hematoma’.

Doctors, he said, have to drill two small holes in his skull in order to drain fluid.

Paul has also been told to expect a prison sentence by a judge after a drink-driving incident in October.

And, on Instagram once again, the 50-year-old – who married Alan in 2018 – admitted: “I’m feeling broken at the moment and I’m trying not to cry while recording these messages.”

“It was really nice and we were talking for a while so it was really sweet.”

The Royal Variety Performance is on Sunday December 19 at 7.30pm on ITV
