Alan Partridge returning to TV

The Norwich hero makes a comeback

While we've heartily enjoyed both his web series and his book, there's literally never enough Alan Partridge in our minds.

So, today is a very very good day.

Steve Coogan's light entertainment hero is making a comeback to television, moving from BBC to Sky Atlantic. He's signed on for two one-hour specials. The first of which is called Welcome To The Places Of My Life, which sees Partridge revisiting his favourite places in Norfolk. The second is titled Alan Partridge On Open Books With Martin Bryce where he'll be interviewed in front of a book club. Can't. Wait.

The deal will also mean a six-part revamped version of his online show Mid-Morning Matters while Coogan has also signed on for some non-Partridge projects, including a two-part series called Steve Coogan's Stand Up Down Under.

Oh and there's also the long-awaited movie which is being released next year.

Best Friday ever perhaps?
