Matt’s dad calls during the taping of Alan Carr: Chatty Man.
Doctor Who star Matt Smith may currently be a Saturday night favourite on BBC1, but he’s revealed that, personally, he’s rather partial to a dose of daytime television.
Speaking in a wide ranging interview with Alan Carr to be screened tonight, he said: “I love a bit of morning TV and Jeremy Kyle. I watched it last week and then after that there was a programme with three mature women on and I thought, ‘Older women on the TV? Bravo!’”
Alan: “So did you get to meet Matt? Is he nice, ‘cause he’s a North Hampton boy, he’s from North Hampton where I grew up.”
David: “He’s lovely. He’s a very nice chap, indeed. Yeah. And I’m told he’s doing very well, which is annoying, no, I’m really excited.”
Alan: ”Oh, come on. You don’t want him to be too good.”
David: ”Oh but I do, though. ‘Cause the thing is, I’m such a sort of fanboy about the show that I just want… Oh, there he is, look.”

Alan: ”It’s like a young you and Catherine Tate, isn’t it?”
David: “It is.”
Alan: ”Why do they love gingers? They do, don’t they? No, they do, for like, helpers, that’s what it’s called on Doctor Who - helper? Carer?”
David: ”That all works, yeah.”
Alan: ”Why do they go for a ginger all the time?”
David: ”I have to say, I think gingers are unfairly discriminated against in this county.”
Alan: ”My brother’s a ginger.”
David: ”Do you discriminate against him?”
Alan: ”Yes, all the time.”
David: ”Of course.”
Alan: ”Well, he calls me a bender.”
David: ”But it’s not… it’s the last acceptable prejudice.”
Alan: “You’re right.”
David: ”I don’t understand why we’re… I think gingers can be - look at Catherine, look at Karen - gingers can be gorgeous!”
Alan: ”Yes! Julianne Moore.”
David: ”They’re gorgeous! Gorgeous! Ow!”
