Great news this 1st of December, not only do we have the joy of having a TFI Friday Christmas special this year for the first time in twenty years, but Chris Evans will have none other than Alan Partridge (Steve Coogan) co-hosting with him.
The ninety-minute festive show will air on Channel 4 on Friday 18th December at 7.30pm and will see Chris and Alan joined by celebrity guests including James Corden, Sir Tom Jones, Jack Whitehall and Lee Mack. Musical acts will include Bryan Adams, Lianne La Havas and Elle King.
Chris Evans said, “Having staggered through nearly 200 TFI Friday rehearsals and live shows over the years, it’ll be a relief to see how it should be done by Norfolk’s master of broadcasting.”
Alan Partridge added, “'I was honoured to receive the invitation to co-present 'Thank Frig It's Friday'. The fee being offered was more than generous, and as soon as I received photographic evidence that my dressing room had its own shower, I signed on the dotted line. My only slight niggle is that they refused to pay for my transport."
Ah Partridge, we've missed you.
