Comedians out for Northern Soul premiere

Steve Coogan and fellow comedian John Thomson turned out to attend a gala screening of their new film Northern Soul.

Former Fast Show star Thomson was spotted on the red carpet with his wife Samantha, who looked stunning in a black dress and flesh-coloured ladies' tights .

Meanwhile Coogan revealed that he still has plans for his most successful creation to date, Alan Partridge.

Following several successful TV series, Partridge proved just as successful on the big screen last year with Alpha Papa. Coogan said he plans to do "a few more shows" on the TV before laying him to rest and pursuing other projects.

Coogan's latest film Northern Soul tells the story of the 1970s dance craze. In the film, the 48-year-old plays a secondary school teacher, a character which the actor said was inspired by a number of "sarcastic" teachers from his childhood growing up in the North West.

Coogan also confirmed he plans to take his popular The Trip series with Rob Brydon to the United States.
