Comedian Ricky Gervais is set to host the Golden Globes for the third time on 15 January.

Despite causing controversy last year, Gervais said audiences can expect a performance with the same tone.

The comedian said he initially thought the organisers, Hollywood Foreign Press Association, would be a "challenge" but he says they now know what to expect from him.
