THIS MORNING SAW Richard Madeley – of Richard and Judy fame, of course – wrap up his stint as Piers Morgan’s stand in on ITV’s flagship breakfast show Good Morning Britain.

Over the past week or so, Madeley has had an ~eventful~ stint in the chair.

He’s basically been accidentally doing a long-running impression of Alan Partridge

The lines are straight out of a Partridge radio monologue:

You look at the beach and think ‘pretty, pretty! Lovely golden sand… that’s safe’. Uh uh, not in certain parts of the country. Quicksand!
It looks peaceful there – but it can be deadly. And a horrible way to die.

Yesterday though saw the pinnacle of Accidental Partridge. A guest on a video interview was finished when Madeley brought it back to tell him he looked like Robbie Coltrane – and he was having none of it

“Good morning Mr Coltrane!”

Following it up with a quick observation about what they’re going to do when the Queen dies is Partridge broadcasting at its finest.

And finally, another impromptu anecdote took place yesterday:

“Intimacy took place”

Oh, Alan.

The amazing week-long extravaganza was topped by Madeley getting his hair cut on live TV

Fans have been “pleading” that he gets kept on – but most people have just been commenting on the eerie similarity to Alan Partridge

His “say literally anything that comes into my head” style of broadcasting was championed in Radio Norwich
