Jimmy Carr has expressed his fears of being ‘cancelled’ upon his return to stand-up comedy once coronavirus restrictions are lifted.
The 48-year-old funnyman admitted that taking a lengthy break due to the pandemic would most likely take a toll and leave him ‘giddy and over-excited’ once he’s finally allowed back on stage.
Speaking on The Jonathan Ross Show, Jimmy explained: ‘Not being able to go out there and do what we normally do has been a challenge.
Discussing life once restrictions have completely been lifted, he continued: ‘I’ve got gigs booked in from June 21st… god willing, that would be a return to normality.
‘I think I’ll probably get cancelled, I’ll be a bit giddy and over-excited. I’m a dab hand at it now.’
The 8 out of 10 Cats host also gushed about his new BBC show, I Can See Your Voice, describing it as a ‘crazy idea’.

‘It’s a singing show, a talent show… no one sings. We get a line-up, and we say who we think who might be able to sing, based on nothing.
‘It’s like working at the airport, you’re basically profiling people: “Those shoes with that dress? No, she can’t sing… she’s holding the mic wrong.” We’re just looking at people and saying who can sing.
‘Then the next round they’re miming. Every time – I’ve never been more certain and more wrong.’

Jimmy stars on the show alongside Alison Hammond and Amanda Holden.
‘It was so fun. We filmed it in the second lockdown. Just to be out of the house. We were kind of thrown together – me, Alison Hammond and Amanda Holden – we had the best fun together,’ he said.
Meanwhile, Jimmy recently spoke about his journey in ‘maintaining’ his looks as he gets older.
Speaking on Gabby Logan’s The Mid-Point podcast last month, Jimmy revealed he had work done on every single tooth and also received a hair transplant.
The Jonathan Ross Show airs at 9.35pm on Saturday April 10 on ITV.
