An Alan Partridge statue has appeared in the middle of Norwich

“When you go to uni and meet new people, you say you’re from Norwich and people instantly mention Alan Partridge. He is so synonymous with the city, and the people have taken to him too.”

The life-sized cold cast brass statue has been in the works for the last three years from the duo, who are self-employed sculptors.

They explained how the statue was modelled on a friend, to work towards the “similar size and build” of Coogan’s 5ft 9in.

The statue will remain outside The Forum in Norwich until Sunday (September 27).

In a five-star review of the first season of This Time with Alan Partridge, NME said: “Alan Partridge might have left the BBC under a cloud of shame, but his return is the complete opposite. It’s a slice of comedic gold and an early contender for the funniest show of the year.”
