Shy Coogan to pen autobiography

Anthony Barnes

Actor Steve Coogan, who has been an ardent privacy campaigner and a leading light in calls for press reform, has struck a deal to publish his autobiography.

The star, known for his bumbling TV creation Alan Partridge as well as his Hollywood roles, will publish the book next year.

Coogan has been very protective of his personal life. Last year he settled a High Court claim after his phone was hacked by the 'News Of The World', receiving an apology and £40,000 (€46,980).

The 47-year-old has previously had literary success with his bestselling spoof book about his alter-ego 'I, Partridge: We Need To Talk About Alan'.
