Alan Carr has opened up about his friend and former co-host Justin Lee Collins as he talked about his domestic abuse.
Alan appeared on Loose Women on Monday where he talked about when they starred together on Channel 4’s Friday Night Project from 2005 to 2009.
Alan’s career has gone from strength to strength with his chat show Chatty Man but Justin was arrested and found guilty after he abused his ex-girlfriend in 2012.
He said yesterday:
“That wasn’t the Justin I knew.
“He was a big part of my life and I had such a laugh with him.
“He was obviously in a toxic relationship and he’s now sorted himself out.”
Then talking about why he has never spoke about it until now he said:
“I didn’t want to throw him under the bus because he’s a good friend and he’s sorted himself out.”
Shame that Justin’s career never followed Alan but that was his choice.
