Newly single Alan Carr has jokingly attempted to recruit model David Gandy as his personal matchmaker.
The hilarious comedian, 45, was interviewing the British hunk when he inquired if the star had any male model pals who were “desperate” and interested in wooing him.
Alan’s planned return to the dating game comes just months after it was confirmed he had split from husband Paul Drayton after 13 years as a couple and three years of marriage.

Giggling, dad-of-two David replied, “I’m sure I could work something out.”
Alan and soon-to-be ex-husband Paul announced they have made the decision to part ways “mutually and amicably” via a joint statement in January this year.
A spokesman for the former couple said: “After 13 years as a couple and three years of marriage, Alan Carr and Paul Drayton would like to announce their separation.
“They made the difficult decision together and amicably to divorce and go their separate ways.
“We request that their privacy be respected at this sensitive time.”
Their split comes after a tough 2021 for the couple – with Paul struggling in his battle with alcohol addiction and facing some legal troubles.
After the end of his marriage became public knowledge, Paul “checked himself into rehab” to protect himself.
“These last few years have been challenging, to say the least, as they have been for so many others,” he said on social media at the time.
“I remain deeply committed to my journey of sobriety and strength. Thank you all for your kindness and support. peace and love.”
Paul entered therapy and rehab last year after going public with his drinking battle by posting a picture of his black eye after a drinking spree.
The party planner and Alan tied the knot in 2018 after 10 years as a couple – with the Chatty Man’s girlfriend Adele being heavily involved in the wedding.
Alan said on ‘The One Show’ after tying the knot: “We know her [Adele] For ages, and when we told her we were getting married, she said, ‘Can I please plan the whole day for you?’
“She did everything in her house. So we walked in there and there’s a grand piano with a man playing Ordinary People.
He added: “Then she sang at our first dance, it was absolutely amazing. I can never repay her, she’s one of a kind as we all know.”
