I have odd taste in men.

The proof? I bring to you a list of my current celebrity crushes...

1) John Barrowman

What?! What the hell am I thinking? He is as gay as the day is long but I think he's sweet. Plus he has a dirty laugh. I'm a sucker for a dirty laugh (Alesha Dixon I'm looking at you). Alas, he's been with his (male) partner since 1991. I'm not holding out much hope.

2) Scott Mills

Again, as gay as the day is long. A theme seems to be developing. He's got a perma tan and comedy veneers yet still I find him attractive. It's possibly because he enjoys a glass or ten of wine as much as I do.

3) David Mitchell

I'm not sure if I fancy him more as David Mitchell or Mark Corrigan. I'd take either. C was full of 'Corriganisms' and I think that was one of the reasons I liked him so much. A bit neurotic, the product of a public school upbringing and full of quotes that I really should write down some day. "I'm thinking of going into town to buy a stylish weatherproof coat" was a particular highlight. Ironically, they did actually go to the same school, albeit a few years apart.

4) Dylan Moran

Yum. Just yum. Irish, scruffy, hilarious and with a penchant for wine. I definitely would.

So, what have we learnt? I like mildly alcoholic, neurotic, gay men.

No surprise there then.
