Brexit has thrown up few morsels of good news over the past year, but this is one thing that we all can celebrate.
With middle aged, patriotic Brits across the country engrossed in political mudslinging the BBC has decided that the time is right to bring Alan Partridge back to our screens.
Creator and star Steve Coogan is aiming to have a new Partridge series written by the end of the year with a view to it launching on BBC2 next spring.
Speaking to The New European, Steve Coogan said: “Well, because he has got a show on the BBC, we have a problem, because we have to explain why he’s a failure, but that he has a show.
“The logic of what he is doing has to make sense.
“It’s conceivable, because in this age of Brexit, they (the BBC) might think they need to get in touch with the ‘Little Englanders’ they ignore.”
