Out 20th October.

3 min video announcing the book - http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-enter ... 46646.html

With Alan Partridge’s new memoir Nomad hitting bookshops this autumn, who better to tell fans more than the man himself?

Steve Coogan’s much-loved comic alter ego released his last ‘autobiography’ I, Partridge in 2011, with Nomad following on from recent mockumentary Scissored Isle (it sees Alan charts the highs, lows and mediums of his one-man walking tour around Britain).

“Nomad brings you the story of a one man walk I undertook to try to learn about who I really am,” explains Alan in the hilarious exclusive clip above. “I was able to use transport when essential but I set myself one caveat: no unlicensed mini-cabs.

“Through witty vignettes, heavy essays and not inducing pieces of wisdom, I shine a light on the nooks of the nation and the crannies of myself. It’s a piece of work of which I’m immensely proud and if I had to sum it up in one word it would be: hope.”

Nomad arrives in stores on 20 October. Now, excuse us while we dash off and attempt to rival Alan’s mouthwatering mountain of freshly buttered toast…

A-Ha! Alan Partridge gets new BBC series - Steve Coogan reveals on The One Show

Steve Coogan confirms that his comic creation Alan Partridge is returning to the BBC for a new series

It appears Alan Partridge has got his dream at last - making his big BBC comeback.

Manchester comedy star Steve Coogan has revealed that his most infamous comic creation, hapless broadcaster Partridge, will be back on the Beeb early next year with his own TV show.

Steve made the surprise announcement as he appeared as a guest on Friday’s BBC One Show.

He said: “Alan will be back on the BBC early next year, there will be a lot of Alan on TV next year.”

Presenters Alex Jones and Amol Rajan laughed that they’d 'got a bit of an exclusive here' and pressed him for further details about the show.

Steve said: “I’m trying to do a leak to the press about it. He’ll just be back on a show, it might be a bit like this. I’m here to do research.”

One Show host Alex said: “We could be your inspiration.” Steve joked: “That’s one way of putting it.”

Sounds like it might be the return of something more like Knowing Me, Knowing You.

Fantastic news :mrgreen:

Been on a real Partridge binge lately (currently finishing up Nomad which is, predictably, strawberry floating fantastic) so more content of any kind gets a big thumbs up from me.

Coogan needs to retire the character because this is the most Partridge thing I've ever seen:

Alan Partridge is returning to live TV as the host of a weekday magazine show - 25 years after making his BBC debut.

This Time with Alan Partridge sees him stand in as the co-host of an evening programme that has more than a few similarities to the BBC's The One Show.

It's described as a "heady mix" of consumer affairs, news, "highbrow interviews and lightweight froth".

Alan last fronted live TV in the 1990s with chat show Knowing Me, Knowing You.

The chat show was brought to an end when Partridge accidentally fatally shot a guest live on air.

Filming on This Time with Alan Partridge started on Monday.

'Perfect fit' for Partridge

The BBC said: "This Time is the perfect shop window for a man of Alan's gravitas and will - or should - see him finally recognised as one of the heavyweight broadcasters of his era."

They added that the agenda was "very much the sweet spot for a man whose CV boasts over two decades of weekday local radio".

"With an array of diverse subjects on the agenda, it promises the perfect fit for a man whose broadcasting style has been described as 'equidistant between chitchat and analysis," the Corporation said.

As with The One Show, which sees a male and female host on the sofa discussing the stories of the day, Partridge will be joined by co-presenter Jennie Gresham and Simon Denton (Sidekick Simon).

While it seems similar to The One Show, fronted by Matt Baker and Alex Jones, filming isn't actually taking place at the BBC itself.

The One Show's eclectic format has been commented on recently, with a flabbergasted Mel Brooks calling it "nuts" when he was a guest.

The six-part series is to be shown on BBC One later this year.
