Alan Carr’s estranged husband, Paul Drayton, has reportedly been jailed for 14 weeks and banned from driving for three years after drink-driving and reversing into a police car.
The 50-year-old, who has separated from Carr after 13 years, attended Brighton Magistrates’ Court on January 26, where the court reportedly heard how he was driving dangerously in Broadbridge Heath, West Sussex, on October 9 of last year.
Previously, Drayton is believed to have denied the drink-driving charges. However, he then pleaded guilty in November.

In the hearing, his representative, John Dye, reportedly asked that Drayton be spared prison due to his personal troubles that led to the incident.
Apparently, his solicitor referenced his alcohol and mental health issues, as well as his failed marriage to Carr.
When delivering his sentence, District Judge Amanda Kelly insisted that Drayton couldn’t be treated ‘differently to anyone else,’ despite the plea.
She reportedly said: “Your driving was so impaired you were driving all over the road and you reversed into a police vehicle.
“You were dicing with death, gambling your life but also gambling the lives of others.
“The reading was so high it was off the scale.”
It’s believed that Drayton has ‘launched an appeal’ against his sentencing, as he’s ‘absolutely petrified’ of going to prison.
Last week, Alan Carr released a statement confirming his separation from Drayton.
It read: “After 13 years as a couple and three years of marriage, Alan Carr and Paul Drayton would like to announce they are separating.
“They have jointly and amicably made the difficult decision to divorce and go their separate ways. We request that their privacy is respected at this sensitive time.”
