Actor Steve Coogan has said he is planning to "cryogenically preserve" his wildly successful Alan Partridge character "in a morgue" before maybe bringing him back to life at a later date.

Coogan, was in London, to attend the premiere of his latest film, Northern Soul, about the 1970s' dance craze based around venues such as the Wigan Casino.

Asked if he was thinking about another Partridge film in the wake of the box office success last year of the Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa movie, Coogan confirmed the North Norfolk Radio DJ is not done yet.
