Ah ha, Mr chairman

SIR Steve Redgrave has the dubious honour of being name-checked by Alan Partridge.

The fictional chat show host, who is played by comedian Steve Coogan, made a joke at the expense of the Henley Royal Regatta chairman on a recent episode of his new BBC 1 series.

He told his co-host Jennie Gresham that he had given up attending spin cycling classes at his local gym because he had “spewed all over the handlebars”.

As she battled to keep her composure, he added: “It’s perfectly normal. Just ask Steve Redgrave — he regularly spews in his canoe. Is that what you call it or is it a kayak?”
