Everyone's favourite fictional radio DJ will be returning to television screens very soon.

Steve Coogan has announced plans to create a new series of Alan Partridge.

The actor revealed the news in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter at the Berlin International Film Festival.

He said: 'We're doing some more Alan at the end of this year. He'll return to the small screen in a way that we're trying to devise at the moment.

'We're not quite sure what that is, but we've got a few ideas that I'm going to keep up my sleeve at the moment. But there'll be more Alan, there'll be a regular appearance of Alan and some of the usual suspects.'

The interview also saw Coogan compare his alter-ego to the new President of the United States, saying: 'In some ways the only person on Earth who's more Alan Partridge than Alan Partridge is Donald Trump.'

Alan's return will follow on from the hour-long mockumentary, The Scissored Isle, which premiered on Sky Atlantic last May.
