MTV News UK caught up with Coogan ahead of the release of his character Alan Partridge's first big screen debut Alpha Papa - where he revealed his DJ alter-ego would be more likely to supper 1D and RiRi than himself.
When asked what Partridge would make of pop acts like One Direction and the Bajan babe, Coogan admitted: "That’s really difficult because Alan’s my alter ego, so I gotta sort of take myself out of the equation.
"I think he would try and be supportive of it because he tries to be supportive mainstream entertainment but I think it would be sort of lost on him whereas I Steve Coogan, I just think those acts are just bloody awful."
He added: "I’m not interested in them at all, I think they are horrific."
You can catch Steve as Alan Patridge when Alpah Papa hits UK cinemas on August 7.
