Alan booked a conference room at Choristers under the name: The Real IRA.
Knowing Me Knowing You - on BBC Radio Four
  Programme Four

Alan Partridge
The Duchess of Stranraer was Alan's first-ever royal guest. Alan was quick to point out that if one half of the royal family got blown, the other half went over a cliff in a minibus on the way to the funeral, and her husband had a fatal accident with a hunting rifle, then she would be Queen.

Steve Thompson, impressionist and funny voice man, was the next guest. His comedy was 'observational' - whatever that means. 'Do your Alan Partridge', enticed Alan. Steve didn't want to. Eventually he relented and gave this rather
Listen insulting performance.

Sandra Peaks M.P., Junior Minister for Housing, was the last guest. Alan was grateful for her work on Norwich City Council, particularly as she'd got rid of some gypsies. Sandra discussed the tabloid controversy of her taking a holiday with homeless 17-year-old twin brothers. Determined to get to the bottom of things Alan got out his cheque book and offered the boys £20,000 to spill the beans. 'We are rent boys,' the twins quickly admitted, 'She made us dress like dogs.' The minister resigned. And on that sordid bombshell the show ended.
