Smell My Cheese! Alan Partridge Set to Come Back to Telly on Sky

By Jon Partridge on at

After being away from the TV world for quite a while, national treasure and comedy darling, Alan Partridge, is set to return to television sets around the country after Steve Coogan signed a deal to move the character to Sky.

Sky Atlantic will be the new home for the character, and he will be appearing in two brand-new one-hour specials, alongside revamped versions of his online series. Coogan said: "Alan has been off the TV for too long but he is even more excited than me about his chance to have a second bite of the cherry."

I think I can speak for a lot of us in saying that we're excited for the man to come back on to our screens. "Back of the net!" indeed. [Sky News]
