Early and Personal Life

Born in 1955 on the 2nd of April, Alan Gordon Partridge was born in Kings Lynn, Norfolk, and raised in Norwich. Taking long walks in the countryside growing up, he would sing his favorite pop-songs to himself, enjoying the solitude. He would later grow up to meet his wife Carol Parry, who he would marry on the 13th of April in 1978, and she would give birth to their son, Fernando, in 1980 on the 6th of June, followed by their daughter, Denise.

Later Carol would leave Alan for her fitness instructor in 1995, and they’d then both finalize their divorce in 1997. He would go on to create the radio and television chat-show ‘Knowing Me, Knowing You’ after a period working as a sports presenter on news programme ‘The Day Today.’ During the final show there’d be a tragic accident involving restaurant critic Forbes McAllister, after which he wouldn’t gain a second series, instead going on to later present for ‘Mid Morning Matters,’ his show on North Norfolk Digital radio.

Becoming a key figure associated with the city of Norwich, he would also see a statue of himself built there. He would also go on to feature in ‘This Time With Alan Partridge’ later on in 2019, with two of the chat-show created for the BBC.
