Jonathan Ross teases huge net worth as co-star relative hints at inheritance

Jonathan Ross and Alan Carr appeared on Friday night's episode (August 5) of 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown, which aired on Channel 4.

Headed up by Jimmy Carr, Jonathan couldn't help but tease his huge net worth while on the show, before quipping that his distant relative – who happens to be Alan Carr – has his eye on his eye-watering will.

After introducing Alan, 45, Jimmy said: "It says here that you're related to one of tonight's guests, is that true?"

"Yes, it's Jonathan Ross. We are related," Alan confirmed.

Jonathan, 61, chimed in: "Yeah, but I've asked you so many times not to say anything."

Alan then snapped back with how he would be willing to accept the fact that they are related if Jonathan ever found himself "looking for a kidney".

Jonathan then went on to reveal that the pair are "fairly close" – a statement Alan agreed with strongly.

Touching on the moment he found out that he was related to Jonathan, Alan said it was like finding out he had "an extra nan".

Jonathan then made a dig towards Alan and hinted at his own huge net worth.

"He keeps asking me about the will," Jonathan quipped.

Earlier this year Alan hosted an episode of his Life's A Beach podcast – with Jonathan appearing as a guest – and the pair explained how they are both from Margate in Kent and are "distantly related".

Alan said on his show: "People might not know this, but your lovely late mum came up to me at your Halloween party and said, 'We are related aren't we'. Do you remember?

"I was so excited because we come from the same area, we are distantly related. I remember going over to you saying, 'Jonathan, Jonathan your mum says we're related' and you went, 'For f**k sake'."

Jonathan then said: "I tried to stop her talking to people because she'd always find some famous connection."

Alan then added: "It's quite a strong link."
