Ricky Gervais is on the set of the new Muppets movie. We know because he's playing silly buggers to camera alongside Pepe The Prawn. Look...

The Disney sequel to the incredibly successful Muppets movie - which will be titled The Muppets...Again! - will star Gervais alongside Tina Fey, Ray Liotta and Modern Family's Ty Burrell.

Ricky told The Christian O'Connell Breakfast Show that working with The Muppets tops collaborating with Robert De Niro on Extras. "Honestly, this is the first time when I've really gone 'I really can't believe my luck here." He said. "I think people think I am blasé about doing all this stuff but this tops working with De Niro."

"It is absolute magic and I have been a huge fan literally for 35 years."

The Muppets...Again! will be out in 2014.
