Alan Carr wants a role in "The Crown".

The "I Don't Like Mondays" host is a big fan of Netflix's regal drama - which documents Queen Elizabeth's reign - and while the next season of the show will focus on the 1970s, he's hoping by the time the programme documents the 1990s, he can get involved and portray Paul Burrell, the butler and confidant of the late Princess Diana.

He said: "I like a lot of stuff on Netflix.

""The Crown" is fantastic, I've put a call in to my agent, I want to play Paul Burrell when they finally get to the Diana years. Wouldn't it just be perfect?"

When he's at home with his husband Paul Drayton, the 41-year-old comic loves watching a huge variety of different shows.

He told the Radio Times: "My Sky planner is eclectic. I love "Civilisations", where you've got Mary Beard walking around the pharoh's tombs, then "Five Star Hotel" and Spencer Matthews bathing with young girls on a Greek island, then someone having their microwave and deep-fat fryer confiscated by heavies of "Can't Pay? We'll take it Away".

"I love real life. It's the rich tapestry that makes this world such a beautiful place. When Russia's not involved."

But Alan isn't a fan of comedy shows.

He said: "I don't watch any comedy. Not because I think, "Oh, I can do it better" but I just don't find things funny.

"I find more humour in reality. Though I did love "Fleabag"."
