Alan Partridge will return for a new show This Time With Alan Partridge, the BBC has announced.

Filming has begun on the news series, starring Steve Coogan as the titular character.

The series will see radio DJ Partridge return to live television for the first time since his 90s chat show Knowing Me, Knowing You.

The show will see Alan handed a career lifeline - the chance to stand in, temporarily, as co-host on This Time, an evening weekday magazine show.

Joining Steve Coogan on the sofa will be Susannah Fielding as his female co-presenter Jennie Gresham, and Tim Key as Simon ‘formerly Sidekick Simon’ Denton.

The show will be a mix of consumer affairs, current affairs, viewer interaction, highbrow interview and lightweight froth.

Written by Neil Gibbons, Rob Gibbons and Steve Coogan, it will air on BBC One later this year.
