BBC Two will broadcast a 25th anniversary special before the end of the year - a 1x60 marking 25 years since his debut on BBC Radio back in 1992.

A BBC One series will then air next year.

Both are to be produced by Baby Cow Productions.

Shane Allen said: "Alan Partridge is in the top tier of comedy characters of all time, it fills my comedy heart with joy to welcome him back to BBC One and BBC Two."

More information will follow once filming commences.
