I like cars. I have about 10 - all British cars. I have a Lotus, Morgan, Aston Martin. I don't really drive them much because I'm scared of damaging them. I just clean them and look at them and sometimes I take them out on a Sunday up and down the road and then I come back and clean them again.
Based the character of Alan Partridge on a radio presenter who interviewed him just as he was becoming famous. Coogan began mimicking the interviewer during the interview and from this came the inspiration for Coogan's most famous creation.
