We seem to have heard this somewhere before, but it's good to hear he's cracking on. Imagine how thrilled we were when, talking to The Sun, he was quizzed about such activity...
He said, 'I haven't written anything yet, but it's something I'd like to do because comedy is fickle.'
Oh. We'd set the Sky+ and everything.
He continued, 'I feel like I'm flavour of the month at the moment. Of course, I've always got the jungle to fall back on - and Celebrity Come Dine With Me.
'But if I do write something and am asked, "Will you be in it?" Yeah. I'm hardly going to be the sexy brooding lead, but I wouldn't mind acting.'
We wouldn't mind acting. Or writing a sitcom too. We also wouldn't mind riding a white unicorn over a rainbow...
He did have something more concrete to say about Michael Parkinson's recent comments - or should we say barbed comments? - about modern chatshows being all comedy and no chat.
He said, 'I know he's happy selling his insurance... and he's got right to moan, but it's a bit undignified. Things have changed now, publicists have so much power.
'If I say to Angelina Jolie, "Have you had Botox? Are those chicken fillets down your top?" I'd get tasered.
'Besides, I'm not like Piers Morgan's Life Sentences - I don't want crying or anyone telling me where the man touched them. Let's just have a laugh, life's too short.'
Oh yes, let's not forget he's back soon with a new series of Alan Carr's Chatty Man.
