Speaking to Closer, McIntyre wants to shed a few pounds before Simon Cowell returns to panel for the live shows: ‘I can’t wait to walk out on stage with him for the line-up and salute like Cheryl!’ he said. ‘I need to be in shape for that. David Hasselhoff is 58 and I look like his dad. He’s 6ft 4 and Amanda Holden’s always wearing enormous heels.’
Sitting with The Hoff on the panel is a dream come true for the comedian too: ‘Knight Rider was my favourite show as a kid,’ he added. ‘I’m thrilled to have The Hoff’s number in my phone. I never call him but I like scrolling down and seeing his number in there. I show everyone!
‘He likes singing to himself, talking to his fictional car KITT from Knight Rider and running in slow motion. He acts out all the parts he’s played very well on a daily basis. He’s not one of these celebs who says: ‘I just want to talk about my new project.’ He’s constantly saying: ‘KITT, get me out of here!’ to his watch. It’s hilarious.’
At least he’s not singing ‘Jump In My Car’…
Michael McIntyre to rake in £20m on tour.
