Aha! Alan Partridge Returns

Here is your first look at Steve Coogan, donning his Pringle jumper for the first time in seven years. Alan Partridge will be returning in a new series of 12, 11 minute short Partridge shows for the internet, which will appear online from November 5 on the site Fostersfunny.

Partridge co-creator Armando Iannucci has also worked on the new web episodes. Coogan has released a new quote as Partridge, saying:
‘I am delighted to announce that after years as a regional broadcaster on North Norfolk Digital my groundbreaking radio segment, Mid Morning Matters, will now be accessible to a potential audience of billions via the World Wide Web (www).

‘That it has taken Foster's to help realise my dream of joining the information superhighway is a damning indictment of the established broadcasters whose shabby treatment of me on Sept 10th 2001 was frankly shabby. I made dozens of calls the next day, all of which were ignored.

‘My appreciation must go to Armando Iannucci and Baby Cow for ignoring the lies, god bless them. In the meantime I look forward to "hanging out 'n' chillin" with the MySpace generation.’
