Alan Partridge’s vision comes true – introducing ‘Youth Hostelling with Chris Eubank’ (Video)

Fans of I’m Alan Partridge will remember the scene well…

Alan has been told that his ‘Knowing Me, Knowing You’ chat show has been been cancelled by the Beeb.

In a lunchtime meeting with the Director of Programming, Tony Hayers (David Schneider), Alan is allowed to pitch various ideas for TV shows.

In a panicked ramble of suggestions, he lists amongst others: ‘Arm Wrestling with Chas and Dave’, ‘Inner-City Sumo’, and of course ‘Youth Hosteling with Chris Eubank’…

Well, brilliantly, the final suggestion has become a reality…well, sort of. Eubank has proved himself an excellent sport by featuring in a mock trailer for Hostelworld.

It’s clear that the former WBO Middleweight Champion of the World hasn’t changed a bit, with his trademark monocle, tweed suit and walking stick, he’s just as…well, Chris Eubank as ever.
