Alan Partridge is "chatting for his life" in a siege on his local radio station in the latest trailer released for his new film Alpha Papa.

Steve Coogan's comedy creation is coming to the big screen this summer and sees DJ Alan trying to negotiate with his colleague Pat Farrell, played by Colm Meaney, after he is sacked from North Norfolk Digital when it is taken over by a big media group who want to change it to Shape.

Pat takes the radio station hostage and refuses to speak to anyone but Alan, so the failed TV presenter is sent in to negotiate.

The trailer promises fans "Action", "Cops", "Ruddy danger" and "Textbook Alan".

Alan is seen hiding down a portable toilet while being threatened at gun point, and when told to identify himself by armed police says: "I'm Alan Partridge. I've not been off the TV for that long!"

Stars of hit comedy show I'm Alan Partridge Lynn (Felicity Montagu), Geordie BP garage worker Michael (Simon Greenall) and DJ Dave Clifton (Phil Cornwell) all make an appearance in the film.

:: Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa will be released on August 7, 2013

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Beware of spending beyond your means. Sticking to a budget will help you survive the festive season relatively unscathed. It will be easier than you think to let your grip on the purse strings slip especially as the big day draws near. Let Christmas be about loving, sharing and giving. Spend quality time preparing food, making decorations and playing games together. If you haven't sent all your cards or round robin emails give some thought about what you will be sharing with others this year.More
