Aha! Alan PatridgeNote to Lynne, clear my diary from November next year because I'm shooting a film - cashback! After a good four years of waiting, Empire have broken the news the world of light entertainment has been waiting for, The Alan Partridge Movie is on the verge of being filmed.

Since his divorce from Carol (who left him for a fitness instructor), Alan's career has been pretty much on a downward spiral, taking in a residence in the Linton travel tavern, helming the 4am Up With a Partridge slot on Radio Norwich, and seeing his autobiography being pulped after four weeks, having failed to beat crime-thriller Bad Slags to the bestseller charts.

Needless to say, Alan has had the last laugh as his real-life alter-ego, Steve Coogan exclusively revealed to Empire: "We're doing a deal right now - I can't say who with - and there'll probably be an official announcement in the next couple of months."
