Alan Partridge - Retirement? You're having a laugh!

RETIREMENT? YOU'RE HAVING A LAUGHS Age creeps up on all of us - even the nation's beloved TV stars. The actors who starred in iconic sitcoms like Only Fools & Horses, Keeping Up Appearances, The Royle Family and I'm Alan Partridge are now firmly established national treasures - but how would the characters they played cope with the financial challenges of retirement? At My Retirement Options, we took a look at how much it might have cost some of Britain's most popular sitcom characters to maintain their on-screen lifestyles. Alan Partridge: Knowing Me Knowing You RETIREMENT a-ha! Norwich Daily Mail S0.000 FREE Buddleia and Clematis collection #1 FAN ESCAPES 口 £7,800 Small House in Norwich Throughout his dazzling showbiz career, Alan Partridge never lost his affection for The Wales of the East. A reasonably sized Bungalow in Norwich would set him back around £7,800 per year. Taking permanent residence in a local travel tavern might cost considerably more. £280 Daily Mail Subscription While his alter-ego Steve Coogan has had some quite public run-ins with the press, Alan is an avid reader of The Daily Mail 'arguably the best newspaper in the world." A daily fix of politically conservative rhetoric would set him back around £280 per year, although he could always switch to the Express if he wanted to save a few pennies. ALAN PARS KA DRIVES T £2,970 Running a small Kia Optima Alongside broadcasting, Norwich and the music of Kate Bush, cars are one of Alan's major passions in life. He was seen driving a fairly modest Kia Optima in 'Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa', but even a small car outside London would cost just under £3,000 per year to ru ATOBLERONE £1,095 Feeding his Toblerone addiction Many TV legends are undone by sex, drugs and/or Rock 'N'Roll, but Alan's major vice is the legendary allure of triangular Swiss chocolate. If he restricts himself to just one pack a day, he can expect to pay £1,095 per year. Norwich Total: £12,745 per year Conclusion: We're not entirely sure what sort of salary you can command from the third-best slot on Radio Norwich, but with a bit of careful saving (and assuming he isn't actually paying poor old Lynn for her tireless services), Alan's expenditures could be just about manageable as he enters his golden years. *) My Retirement Options Guiding you through a changing market
