COMEDIAN Steve Coogan said 'A-ha!' to Croydon College students as they took a trip to perform in his new Alan Partridge series.
The Norwich radio presenter is producing a new series of Mid-Morning Matters for Sky and a group of Year 1 and 2 performing art students from the college were paid £50 for their work in a sketch.
James Miller, the college's programme leader for performing arts and production, said: "What a fantastic and valuable experience for the students.
"Not only gaining practical knowledge about acting and filming but also being directed by Steve Coogan.
"It will look good on their actor's CV and also feeds into their professional practice."
Meanwhile, Coogan made a surprise visit to Croydon last Friday night (November 14).
The comedian and actor was at town centre pub The Spread Eagle, to watch a performance of 'Albert Einstein' – the latest show in the pub's upstairs theatre.
Coogan was joined in town by Tim Key, best known as Partridge's radio pal Sidekick Simon.
