Teetotal is considering an alcoholic relapse on TV - he wants his cartoon cameo on longrunning animated hit "" to be a drunken affair. The British funnyman is open about his past battles with booze and drugs, which spiraled into heroin addiction before sobered up in 2002.

But the star insists he'd love to have a "relapse" with Homer Simpson and his hard-drinking pal Barney when his yellow alter-ego appears on the show later this year. He tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "It's true I'm going to be on The Simpsons. I was having an amazing birthday party... and then my agent says, 'Oh, The Simpsons want you in an episode'."

"Once you've gone yellow, you've made it. My ideal show would be where I have a cartoon relapse with Barney and Homer and get smashed out of my mind with them."
