Victoria Beckham To Star In Partridge Movie

VICTORIA BECKHAM is set for a big break in the movie industry after landing a role in ALAN PARTRIDGE: THE MOVIE.

The fictional radio DJ - famous as the comedy alter-ego of British funnyman STEVE COOGAN - is hitting the big screen after the enduring popularity of his UK sitcoms KNOWING ME, KNOWING YOU WITH ALAN PARTRIDGE and I'M ALAN PARTRIDGE.

The former SPICE GIRL will play a demanding diva character to be interviewed by Partridge in the movie, a scene which brings the NORWICH NIGHTS DJ back on air.

A movie insider says, "The scripts for Partridge are obviously under wraps and writing is still in progress, but Victoria's part is pretty much done and dusted.

"She'll be the interviewee that finally allows Alan back on the airwaves with an incendiary chat and her part calls for some serious comic timing.

"She'll add glamour to the project and prove she's able to take the p**s with the rest of them, it's a brilliant move for her."

The movie - which is being filmed in London, Los Angeles and around owl sanctuaries in Norwich, eastern England - is set to hit cinemas early 2007.
