Norfolk’s most famous fictitious DJ is set to return to the small screen as filming takes place for a new series of the Alan Partridge show Mid Morning Matters.

It is thought some filming began on October 27, although it is unclear whether Partridge will be visiting Norfolk to shoot any scenes for the show.

It will be the second series of Mid Morning Matters, which follows Partridge as he presents his daily show on the fictional digital radio station North Norfolk Digital.

The first series was originally produced for online but the new six-part series is being made specifically for TV and is due to be screened on the Sky Atlantic channel next year.

Steve Coogan, speaking as Partridge, previously said: “I am both thrilled, humbled, gladdened and excited to be bringing Mid Morning Matters back to Sky Atlantic. I expect those who doubted its success feel suitably chastened to never again doubt the wisdom of my career choices and to say nothing in response unless their comments are wholly supportive and positive. I hope I’ve made myself clear...thank you, let’s leave it there.”

The series is being made by London-based Baby Cow Productions and produced by Steve Coogan and Henry Normal. It is written by Steve Coogan, Neil Gibbons and Rob Gibbons.

Partridge is also said to be starring in what is described as “a hard-hitting one-hour documentary special.”

The DJ made it to the big screen with his first ever feature film Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa last year. The movie was filmed in Norwich, Cromer and Sheringham, and Partridge attended its world premiere at Hollywood Cinema in Norwich’s Anglia Square.
