  • Posh to guest-star in Alan Partridge movie?

    Victoria Beckham is being courted to appear in Steve Coogan’s upcoming Alan Partridge movie.

    Producers of the movie are reportedly trying to get La Beckham to sign up as the tactless presenter’s assistant.

    An insider claimed that the movie had stalled while producers debated who should be cast as Partridge’s long-suffering assistant.

    And Posh allegedly impressed the filmmakers with her rapier-like wit’.

    The source said: ‘The Partridge film has been in pre-production for an age. One reason was because they couldn?t agree on Lynn.

    ‘Felicity Montagu, who played Lynn in the series, doesn’t want to go to Hollywood and the film’s backers decided they wanted a big name to replace her.

    ‘It was also important to them to have a Brit and someone with a sense of fun.’

    The source added: ‘Victoria is a big name but no one expected her to have such a rapier-like wit. She’s game to frump up for the role, too. She was practising her hangdog grimace to David on Monday. It was cracking him up.’

    Alan Partidge, played by his creator Steve Coogan, first appeared in the Radio 4 show On the Hour, before hitting the big-time with his own shows, The Day Today, Knowing Me, Knowing You and I’m Alan Partridge.
