Back of the net, etc, etc...

The actor and comedian was revealing details to The Hollywood Reporter about reincarnating his classic comic creation - the embarrassingly crass fictional radio DJ and failed TV presenter Partridge, co -created by Peter Baynham and Armando Iannucci.

Speaking during a Facebook Live with the US publication, Coogan said that a new project involving Alan Partridge was currently in the works, and alluded that it could take a different direction from Sky's 2010 series Mid Morning Matters With Alan Partridge.

"We're doing some more Alan at the end of this year," Coogan disclosed. "He'll return to the small screen in a way that we're trying to devise at the moment. We're not quite sure what that is, but we've got a few ideas that I'm going to keep up my sleeve at the moment.

"But there'll be more Alan, there'll be a regular appearance of Alan and some of the usual suspects."

Comparing the crude and incompetent character, with a massive ego, to US President Trump, Coogan continued: "In some ways, the only person on Earth who's more Alan Partridge than Alan Partridge is Donald Trump.

"Even Alan Partridge would think Donald Trump is a bit much. I thought Nigel Farage was the incarnation of Alan Partridge, a nightmare version of Alan Partridge who actually wields some power, but I would have never predicted the leader of the free world would be an uber-Partridge."
