Steve Coogan to bring back Alan Partridge for new podcast series

Legendary comedy character Alan Partridge is set to return for a new podcast series.

The Norfolk radio host, played by comedian Steve Coogan, will reprise the role for the project titled ’From The Oasthouse: The Alan Partridge Podcast’.

Coogan has been playing Partridge in various TV and radio roles for nearly 30 years (PA)

According to the NME, the podcast will aim to show Partridge with ’a maturity and insight that will be instantly recognisable to his fans, even if it’s not yet acknowledged by some of his more storied peers’.

Speaking about the venture, Partridge said: "If David Dimbleby has one, then of course I needed to make one. All national treasures have a podcast.

"With this series, I want to give my fans an intimate view of who I really am. You may think you know me, but trust me, you have no idea what goes on behind closed doors at my podcast innovation studio.

"Besides, I’m bored of Ofcom and its regulations and so it’s time for the UK to hear what a real award-winning podcast is like.

"Tune in or you’re going to be missing out on the best thing you’ll hear since I was last on radio."

Partridge is most famous for his show ’I’m Alan Partridge’ which comprised of two seasons between 1997 and 2002.

The full series of the new podcast will be available on Audible from September 3 and there will be a premiere of the first episode exclusively on Amazon Alexa from June 5 to June 12.
