    Its true! Linky

    For yank's who dont know who Alan Partridge is (played by Steve Cougan), he's a very well known sitcom character who is very middle-aged and is known for stunning quotes such as "Wings???? Only the band the beatles could have been!" Info for Norwich's famous son here

    What would Alan Partridge say? Back of the net!

    If its in the Guardian it must be true!

    I hope it is anyway. What a brilliant hoax if it turns out to be false. Possibly better then when Heat magazine had an 'exclusive' with news that Charlotte Church was duetting with Goldie Lookin Chain on a track called 'Stick it in Cider"!

    While I don't believe everything I read why would they make this story up with such bizarre celebs?
    I don't care if it is true or not but the idea is quite funny, I've seen Coogan interviewed and he seems like an OK sort of guy, I bet his head is in his hands this morning.

    naughty steve - apparently he's fond of sex 'accessories'.
    what a great pairing though...

    BBC News has more!

    Oh my god, if only it were true. The possibilities are endless.

    I wish I knew what Steve Coogan was like out of Partridge persona, even looking at the photo of him on the news site - i think it's just Alan Partridge after going to a decent stylist...

    Premier League!

    Could this 'news' 'scandal' have anything to do with the forthcoming Alan Partridge: The Movie?? :rolleyes:

    I wonder if he used his "That was textbook intercourse!" quote afterwards :)

    Apparently Steve Coogan coerced her into having unprotected sex. I can only imagine how that went… remember the Alan Partridge episode where he’s in bed with Jill (one of the workers from his company, Pear Tree Productions… it’s actually the episode where he utters the immortal “Actually, a pipe of Pringles will suffice” line) and he’s explaining to her that he has no condoms?

    I’ve taken the liberty of repeating that scene except with Courtney Love
    instead of Jill:

    Alan: Right, let battle commence! [Slightly muffled] Do you like me doing that?
    Shall I do it more quickly or shall I maintain the same speed?
    Courtney Love: That’s fine.
    Alan: Right. Shall I move on to the other one? Oh, that’s lovely. That’s first
    class. That is superb. Ooh, there you go, it’s all happening! Courtney Love I’m afraid I have no sheathes.
    Courtney Love: No what?
    Alan: Sheathes, er, prophylactics, you know, rubber johnnies. Actually, being
    your age and everything there’s probably no need for them. I’m talking about
    the menopau … whoooo! Courtney Love you know your onions! Do you mind if I
    talk? It helps me keep the wolf from the door, so to speak. Courtney Love, what do you
    think about the pedestrianisation of Norwich town centre? I’ll be honest I’m
    dead against it. People forget that [increasingly breathless] traders need
    access to Dixons! [Regaining himself] They do say it’ll help people in [half-
    sighing] wheeeeelchairs!

    coogan's antics have been well known in the industry for quite some time. has a bit of a nose monkey... and courtney is such a waste of space. what a horrible gene pool to take a dip in...blah!

    Well, if you're going to quote Partridge...

    Alan: Yeah, cheers. So, who's your favourite singer, then?
    Ben: Oh, anything, really, you know. Frank Sinatra, Kurt Cobain.
    Alan: Who's he?
    Ben: Nirvana. Blew his head off with a gun?
    Alan: Why?
    Ben: He was depressed.
    Alan: Why, were they not very good?
    Ben: No, they were great.
    Alan: Oh. Someone should've told him!

    :p

    I can't imagine Courtney with Alan Partridge. Now, Courtney with Paul Calf I could imagine...

    What's up with the bastardization of BV's avatar by people who think they're cool by doing it?

    I suspect it's in a similar vein to all the Mods and contributers avatars suddenly sprouting Keira Knightly's hair recently...

    Didn't she say a couple of days ago that she's back using drugs? Poor baby.

    Oh come on, let's not gild the lilly. Having Courtney Love for a mother... growing up under her influence... grim as it may sound, let's hope that either the drugs limit the child's self-awareness to the point that they are blissfully ignorant of what a wretched hand they were dealt in life, or he/she is raised by someone else and thereby given something resembling a chance at a normal life.

    That woman is a shameful waste of a human suit.

    I've been wanting to see I'm Alan Partridge ever since I watched Coogan play Tony Wilson in "24 Hour Party People". BBC America finally got off their arses and started airing the show (albeit only one episode a week, aired Friday/Saturday at midnight - thank goodness for Tivo!), and, I have to say, it was worth the wait. Some of the funniest stuff I've seen in ages. I can understand some of the criticism now that he played Wilson as Partridge, but I think that's just because the Partridge character is so strong that he may be typecast now.

    Coogan was also in Jim Jarmusch's film "Coffee and Cigarettes"; his little vignette with Alfred Molina pretending to be his cousin was one of the funniest parts of a rather uneven film.
