News: Alan Partridge Meets His Lookalike

Alan Partridge had a classic awkward encounter on his BBC series This Time when he met his Irish doppelganger in the fourth episode of the series.

In a section of the spoof magazine show on lookalikes Partridge encountered an Irish farmer called Martin Brennan – also played by Steve Coogan – who did not know who Alan Partridge was until the similarity had been pointed out to him a week ago.
