I won't host the Globes again, vows Gervais

RICKY Gervais has said he never wants to host the Golden Globes again after describing it as "like a parachute jump". The comic, who recently hosted the awards for the third time, caused controversy last year with a series of near-the-knuckle remarks about Hollywood stars.



This year he came under fire from critics for not being funny, with one writing his performance "felt forced and heavy-handed".

Writing on his blog, Gervais said he had "a blast" but did not want to do it again.

He said: "I've told my agent to never let me be persuaded to do it again though. It's like a parachute jump. You can only really enjoy it in retrospect."

Gervais, who found fame as the co-creator of The Office, said the crowd "were great this year too".
