New Alan Partridge trailer released

Steve Coogan is bringing Alan Partridge to the big screen

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

Aries:

Wanderlust may be too powerful to resist. Planning a long holiday will be a pleasant diversion from work. You don't have to have fancy accommodation. You're willing to rough it for an adventure, but you do want to get good value for your money. Doing some research into the best places to stay and eat will pay off handsomely. Take along a friend who is free spirited and eager to explore unfamiliar vistas. The two of you will make great travelling companions.More
