Speaking exclusively to RadioTimes.com at the British Podcast Awards, Cooper – who presents the podcast alongside Jamie Morton and Alice Levine – said that the My Dad Wrote a Porno team brainstormed ideas for a film after airing their HBO special in 2019.

“So we did the HBO show a couple of years ago and we always talk about the movie version, we’ve got quite the cast coming together so that would be great but yeah, I mean who knows?

“I don’t know what the idea is, we’ve talked about loads of version of it. There’s got to be a way of doing this on the screen so you know, who knows. It’s definitely something where we’re like, ‘Could this happen? Or maybe it’s just better as a podcast.’ Who knows.”

The podcast, which sees Cooper, Jamie Morton and Alice Levine read out extracts from erotic novels written by Morton’s father (who’s pen name is Rocky Flinstone), has seen the likes of Elijah Wood, Daisy Ridley, Dan Levy, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Stephen Mangan appear on the podcast so far – and Cooper has his eye on another potential guest.

“We heard the other day that Daniel Kaluuya listens, but these are always like, ‘Is this true?’ Someone once told me Adele listens and I’m like, ‘Is that true?'” he added.

“And we’ve heard on the grapevine another couple of people so there’s still people out there we’d obviously love to have on but they’re just crazy busy.”
