Steve Coogan is involved in the production of the newest film in his Alan Partridge series, Alpha Papa. If you like funny, this is it. The film has been in the works for quite a while now, and Steve says he’s relieved it’s finally in production. Steve’s role in the film is superb and fits him well.
The new Alan Partridge film sees a hostage situation, guns, police and a whole lot of danger. It’s only fitting, then, that Partridge – local funnyman Steve Coogan’s best creation – should don a James Bond-esque suit to his film preview; step forward Brighton’s favourite tailor: Gresham Blake. Looking for a suit which says ‘Prince Charles crossed with Roger Moore’ we hope Partridge will be looking his best while using his licence to…make us laugh. The film has been in talks for years, but Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa will finally be released in August. We. Can’t. Wait.

The art of tennis
Kim Sears may have spent a long time touring with her Wimbledon Champion boyfriend and now lives with him in a £5 million house in Surrey, but don’t forget she used to be a Brighton girl! Sears studied English Literature at Sussex University for three years, after growing up in East Sussex and studying for A-Levels in Burgess Hill. Sears is now said to be painting portraits of pets for her company, ‘Brushes And Paws’, showing off her love of dogs and paintings (her dog, Maggie May, even has a Twitter account!). We’re hoping she and Murray will make a trip back to Brighton soon, and if it isn’t already booked for Kutcher and Kunis perhaps they could start thinking about a big day at the Royal Pavilion?
Steve Coolgan’s new film is in production and you’ll be able to see it this August on ITV. We can’t wait, how about you? It’s about time for more humor given all the serious dramas ITV has been producing lately. Will you be watching for Alpha Papa?
