Steve Coogan and Simon Farnaby find inspiration in their sheds

Simon Farnaby (Horrible Histories, Detectorists, Paddington) is the author of a new shed-ish children's book called The Wizard in my Shed which, it says here, will mix "laugh-out-loud action adventure, with a fun-filled magical, historical twist". Illustrated by Claire Powell it is due out in October this year and the second in the series in 2022.

Meanwhile, Steve Coogan's Alan Partridge is returning as the Norwich-based DJ in an 18-part podcast produced from his shed, called From the Oasthouse: The Alan Partridge Podcast. "All national treasures have a podcast", said Partridge. "If David Dimbleby has one, then of course I needed to make one. With this series, I want to give my fans an intimate view of who I really am. You may think you know me, but trust me, you have no idea what goes on behind closed doors at my podcast innovation studio."

The series will be on Audible from September 3 and a free episode will be available on Amazon Alexa between 6 and 12 June. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
