Rylan Clark’s boozy night descends into hilarious chaos as Alan Carr goes ‘skinny dipping’ and belts out karaoke
supports HTML5 videoRylan Clark has proven that a good ol’ fashioned Saturday night in with pizza, booze and karaoke will never, well, go out of fashion. Throw in a touch of skinny dipping and you have yourself a party. The former Big Brother presenter invited some of his closest celebrity pals over to his plush pad for a casual night in, and it looks like Alan Carr, ex CBBC host Angellica Bell and Holby City actor David Ames had a free schedule. Snubbing any of the fancy bars and restaurants they could’ve chosen, the group kept it lowkey, grabbed their hoodies and created their own fun at Rylan’s. Chatty Man host Alan made himself right at home and got stuck into the boxes of pizza while Rylan joked: ‘Why the f**k are you in my kitchen?’ prompting a big hearty laugh from Angellica. The two presenters continued with their fake fight with Alan, 46, jokingly swearing at Rylan, 33, before storming off – accidentally into the utility room – and trying to open the door which he found locked. Cut to minutes later and the group moved into Rylan’s stunning modern garden where they showed off their dance moves to Becky Hill’s music and swigged back the booze. ‘Got a text!’ Rylan exclaimed in reference to the Love Island catch phrase as they sat in an igloo, with his garden reminiscent of the dating show’s famous Mallorcan villa. It wasn’t long before Alan was stripping off into his smalls and jumping into Rylan’s indoor pool before being joined by the rest of the gang.
