Dear Alan, Norwich's, and East Anglia's greatest ambassador (and living in the Anglia region I can confirm Steve Coogan has it spot on).
Mad as hell, Alan lives in his self-deluded world believing that his 'talents' deserve better. A man of bland tastes, he thinks he's cutting edge. Thinking he's morally superior to everyone else, he launches into spiteful and/or foul-mouthed outbursts when he gets criticised. Like David Brent, he's an overgrown petulant child, but lovable because he tries to suppress emotions like rage, but can't quite manage it.
Though people had the uncanny knack of dying in front of him, Alan's 182 days at the Linton Travel Tavern probably tipped him over the edge, and his chocolate addiction was the obvious substitute for the missing affection in his life.
Things seemed to change for the better in 2002. With a new autobiography on the go, and the much-too-good-for-him Sonia in his life, Alan's personal life and career seemed on the up. It wasn't to be, but watching his book being pulped, Alan had probably come to the conclusion that he wasn't as great as he thought he was, and that he really needed to get back to sports presenting.
And there's always Lynn, someone Alan was quite protective of, especially when in the company of "sex people"...
