Alan previously revealed he’d stopped drinking in 2018 in support of his teetotal husband Paul Drayton, and the former ‘Chatty Man’ host now only has a glass of wine on special occasions.
He said: “I like eating and drinking, but it was ridiculous before – we were cracking open a bottle of rose because it was a Monday.
“We were out of control. It was a laugh, but looking at Paul, sometimes the party has to stop.
“I enjoy a drink and I have it on special occasions now, it’s a real treat for me.”
Although the coronavirus lockdown has tempted Paul to start drinking again, Alan is proud of his husband for staying sober.
He continued: “It’s been tough for Paul during lockdown.
“He’s been saying, ‘Oh, shall we get a bottle?’ and I say, ‘No, we’re not getting any rose wine in.’ He’s been so good and I’m so proud of him.”
