Alan Carr’s Adventures With Agatha Christie will see self-confessed series fans explore her world of murder and murder by visiting the coasts, countryside and quaint villages around the country .
Alan talks about the show coming on More4 Sun : “I can’t wait to shoot this movie.
“Whether it’s this year’s star-studded Hollywood remake of Death On The Nile or David Suchet’s Poirot remake on a lazy Sunday afternoon, I can’t help but be drawn to Agatha’s world. Christie.
“I’m still as excited as I was when I picked up The Murder At The Vicarage in a second-hand bookstore during a Devon caravan years ago.”
Alan often talks about preferring to learn one of Agatha Christie’s murder mysteries rather than playing sports when he was growing up, even though his father was a professional football manager.
The stand-up comedian is also testing the waters across the pond as he tries to crack America.
With his popularity growing in the United States after appearing on RuPaul’s Drag Race UK and the UK vs the World series, he has scheduled a few gigs.
This comes after splitting from husband Paul Drayton in January after 13 years together and he has admitted that he is cautious about starring in his comedy Stateside. He is currently touring with his show Regional Trinket.
Talking about the prospects, Alan said: “I’ve done a little bit in Europe, I’m going back to Australia and New Zealand – I love it – and I’m done with Canada.
“And, this is an exclusive event, I will be doing some very, very small dates in the US. I’m scared. Should I be afraid?”
