This Time With Alan Partridge was confirmed for a second season last February, with star Steve Coogan confirming it would air this year.
The new trailer for This Time sees Partridge and his co-host Jennie Gresham taking part in a cooking segment, in which they drink a cocktail that includes egg white.
“Like poached egg?” Partridge asks, before being horrified that it’s instead raw egg in the drink. “You can’t eat raw egg!” he says incredulously in response.
Addressing the audience, he adds:
“Please, please cook your eggs. Be safe. Be egg safe.”
Here’s the trailer for This Time:
Speaking ahead of the show’s upcoming second season, Coogan said in an interview:
“We’re trying to set ourselves a task of having the stuff on-screen [with the chat show] and then have a kind of parallel unseen story that we get glimpses of, this parallel narrative of what’s going on in [Alan’s] private life and Jennie, his co-presenter’s, private life,”
“And then, sort of, have those two things go parallel. We haven’t quite realised where it goes but we want it to end up in a strange and unexpected place. That’s all I can say.”
It was announced earlier this week that season two of Coogan’s This Time show will air on BBC One from the end of this month.
