Alan on Brexit

Steve Coogan has revealed that Alan Partridge will be ‘the voice of Brexit’ when he returns to the BBC.

Coogan told The New European that the new series is due to air on BBC2 in spring 2018. Alan was last on the BBC around 15 years ago, and in recent years he has been on Sky (and of course on the big screen in Alpha Papa) instead.

In response to being asked what Alan is up to now, he said: “Well, because he has got a show on the BBC, we have a problem, because we have to explain why he’s a failure, but that he has a show. The logic of what he is doing has to make sense. It’s conceivable, because in this age of Brexit, they (the BBC) might think they need to get in touch with the ‘Little Englanders’ they ignore.”
