The things they say:

“I don’t want to abandon Alan Partridge. I just want to show I can do something else… I quite like the Alan Partridge pony – I like riding it occasionally. I’ll do something else with Partridge, but I want to do other things. What gets me out of bed in the morning is to do something challenging that might fail.” British funnyman Steve Coogan has no plans to abandon his iconic role of fictional radio/TV personality Alan Partridge, despite his recent success with other projects, including his acclaimed film Philomena.
