Ah ha! Alan Partridge flashes socks

Ah ha! Radio Norwich's very own Alan Partridge showed off his socks at the London premiere of the much anticipated Alpha Papa on Wednesday.

The 55-year-old radio presenter pulled on a fetching pair of black socks underneath his baby-blue suit, tailored by Gresham Blake, a crisp, white shirt, a pink tie and brown loafers.

The DJ, portrayed by Steve Coogan, flew into Leicester Square in a helicopter having previously attended the world premiere in Norwich a couple of hours beforehand.

Partridge said that his return to Norwich felt like "sitting in a warm bath whilst having a cup of cocoa and peanut butter on toast whilst watching Air Crash Investigation on a TV - it feels good".

Upon reaching London, the often controversial DJ had changed his tune about airing the world premiere in his home city.

"This is the real premiere. The Norwich thing was just me throwing a bone to the dogs. That was just a tin pot sideshow, frankly. But they won't mind me saying that because they don't watch national news," he said.

While Partridge said that he didn't expect the film to win any Academy Awards, he believed that it could have a deep cultural impact.

"It's one that could spark a cultural renaissance that is as cultural as the Renaissance."
