A couple celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary in an unusual way today by attending the Alan Partridge film premiere in Norwich.
Megan King, 38, who teaches in Bangkok, Thailand, was one of the winners of the EDP and Evening News competition to win tickets to the first screening of Alpha Papa at Hollywood Cinema, Anglia Square.
She grew up in Bawburgh and entered the contest while visiting her father in the south Norfolk village.
Mrs King took her husband Stephen, 40, to the premiere.
She said: 'I couldn't believe we won it. I find Alan Partridge hilarious. It does remind us of home when we watch the DVDs in Bangkok.'
After the film she added: 'It was brilliant and lived up to everything. It was classic Alan Partridge.'
Another winner was company director Robert Knights, 41, from Beckside, Horsford, who brought his wife Susie, 41.
