Alan Partridge is set to bring his unique presenting style to a special Christmas edition of revived Channel 4 show ‘TFI Friday’. Steve Coogan's comedy creation will join host Chris Evans on December 18th, for what promises to be an unmissable episode of the Friday night chat-show.

Steve Coogan as Alan PartridgeAlan Partridge will join Chris Evans for 'TFI Friday’s' Christmas special.

Guests on the night include comedians James Corden, Jack Whitehall and Lee Mack as well as singer Tom Jones. There will also be music from Bryan Adams, Lianne La Havas and Elle King.

Speaking about his special co-host, presenter Chris Evans said: "Having staggered through nearly 200 TFI rehearsals and live shows, it’ll be a relief to see how it should be done by Norfolk’s master of broadcasting.”

Partridge himself added: "I was honoured to receive the invitation to co-present Thank Frig It’s Friday. The fee was more than generous, and as soon as I received photographic evidence my dressing room had its own shower, I signed on the dotted line."

Next year Partridge will once again be back on our screens for a new series of 'Alan Partridge's Mid Morning Matters' on Sky Atlantic. The series first aired in 2012 and will be once again written by Coogan alongside Neil Gibbons and Rob Gibbons.

When asked about the show’s return last month Partridge said: “I am both thrilled, humbled, gladdened and excited to be bringing Mid Morning Matters back to Sky Atlantic."

"I expect those who doubted its success feel suitably chastened to never again doubt the wisdom of my career choices and to say nothing in response unless their comments are wholly supportive and positive. I hope I've made myself clear... thank you, let's leave it there.” It is expected to premiere on Sky Atlantic in February.
