Ricky Gervais on his new comedy Life's Too Short

Ricky Gervais speaks exclusively to Richard Bacon from the set of his new comedy, Life's Too Short. The series will star Warwick Davis, who took the lead role in the movie Willow, as well as appearing in the Harry Potter films.

Barry McGuigan, the 'Clones Cyclone', also has a book out - his autobiography, Cyclone: My Story. He tells Richard how he went from being a world featherweight champion boxer to a commentator, motivational speaker and trainer, running his own boxing academies.

Plus after 3pm, a chance to air your gripes about daily life in 'The Moan-In': Richard and special guest David Quantick judge the quality of your moans, awarding points for originality and passion.
