24 September 2012

Celebrity Big Brother UK winner Julian Clary has revealed plans to create a gay sitcom with fellow reality show contestant Julie Goodyear.

Speaking during a radio interview, Clary said: ‘There is talk of a sitcom based in the gay Bed and Breakfast called the White Swallow which seems a good idea to me.

‘And [Julie Goodyear] is very funny and has great comic timing. So I think my people are talking to her people. ‘

Coronation Street legend Goodyear and comic Clary came up with the idea for a gay sitcom during their stay in the Big Brother house during August and September.

Clary told the Daily Star after winning the celebrity version of the British reality show: ‘I’d like to work with her on something. I can see a sitcom with us in, an odd couple sitcom.’

‘We’ll talk about it. Julie has great comic timing so it could really work. Our coping mechanism in the house was just to have a laugh.’

Clary is currently touring the UK with his stand-up show; Position Vacant, Apply Within. The show is about Clary’s quest for love and will involve people from the audience being brought on stage and ‘apply’ to be the comic’s partner.

The show will climax with Clary and the successful applicant being married by a female archbishop.
