“We will always have an emergency guest around. It’s as close to being a stand-up gig as any show I’ve done. You cannot cover all eventualities. If it works great, and if it doesn’t, too late for me to fix it. ‘

John also insisted that he was not “in any way” trying to emulate the other talk show hosts Graham Norton or Jonathan Ross.

He said: “Graham Norton and Jonathan Ross are the kings of UK talk shows and there is no way we can try to emulate what they are doing.

“It’s more like the American show. It’s a bit more entertainment-based, there are VTs that could be dropped in and guests will be a part of the show throughout. Hope you get the impression that three or four people are talking.
