Ricky Gervais

Ricky Gervais joins Jonathan Ross on his Friday night show

This week Jonathan Ross welcomes Ricky Gervais to his BBC One show, Friday Night With Jonathan Ross.


In the show Ricky announces his next collaboration with Stephen Merchant, Man From The Pru.


"It's about escaping .. it's funny and real as well."


He also admits to being a big X Factor fan: "I get caught up in it. When it's a genuine human interest story, I cry.


"It's very well done, they press the right buttons emotionally."

Jonathan also talks to Gordon Ramsay who tells how he turned down Strictly Come Dancing:


"They asked me a few years ago. I'd love to learn to dance but I couldn't take three months off... and I'm not sure about sprinkling my body in glitter!"


Also on the show is American comedian Sarah Silverman.


And, there's music from Razorlight.


A Hotsauce TV production for BBC One.
