Alan Carr is many things – a comedian, TV presenter and talent show judge, but we never had him down as a B-52s impersonator.

Until now.

The RuPaul’s Drag Race UK judge has revealed his hidden talent, showing off how his voice sounds like the intro to the American new wave band’s classic 1989 hit Love Shack.

Alan made the revelation during a recent appearance on Zoe Ball’s BBC Radio 2 Breakfast show, and now we really can’t unhear it.

“You know everyone said at school that I sound like the man from The B-52s,” he explained, before launching into the opening lyrics.

Uncanny right?

As Zoe fell about in the studio laughing, Alan admitted it was a “very niche” impression, joking: “It doesn’t come up [much]. You know, most people will say: ‘Oh can you do Chris Eubank? Or something like that.’

“But no, I can do ‘the man’ from The B-52s.”

Alan and Zoe can currently be seen sharing the screen together in ITV’s new ABBA-inspired talent search Mamma Mia! I Have A Dream.

The show sees 14 West End hopefuls trying out in the hope of winning the two coveted roles of Sophie and Sky in the famous stage musical, which is based on the hits of the Swedish pop group.

While Zoe is presenting the show, Alan serves on the judging panel alongside singer Jessie Ware, Glee actor Amber Riley and West End star Samatha Barks.

The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show airs weekdays from 7am on BBC Radio 2, while Mamma Mia! I Have A Dream continues on Sunday at 6.15pm on ITV1.
