Ricky Gervais says he's excited but nervous after landing the lead role in the latest Muppets movie.

Filming of The Muppets 2 began in London earlier this month with the movie scheduled for release in March.

Last December the comedian announced via his official twitter account that he'd landed the starring role.

The Muppets is currently filming at Pinewood Studios and is due for release in March next year.
