    Alan is to be a judge at the Swaffham Country Show. A box of Alan's things finally arrived from Carol. He was pleased to find Nigel Rees' Book of Humorous Graffiti - the Koran for the after-dinner speaker.

    Tony Hayers is dead and Alan is over the moon. Tony will be replaced by Chris Feather - an old friend of Alan's.

    The funeral. Alan had some kind words of comfort and a carriage clock for widow Jane Hayers. Alan also found a quiet moment to buy a Bang & Olufsen sound system.

    Alan has a new Five Year Contract with the BBC. Chris Feather has big plans for Alan. This is the best news ever!

    Alan is throwing a party in his room to say goodbye to the hotel staff.

    After an epic 182 days spent at this sterile three-star hotel, Alan can finally look forward to moving on.

    What does the future hold for Alan Partidge now he is back on good terms with the BBC? Perhaps now Monkey Tennis will get the development time it really needs and youth hostels all over Britain will look forward to a visit from Chris Eubank.
