The term "guilty pleasures" is a strange one. While on one hand, you're admitting enthusiasm for something, you're also confessing that you'd rather not confess it to everyone. But in our recurring franchise, we're forcing, or rather politely asking, celebrities to tell us about their secret passions.

With ShortList favourite Ricky Gervais on this week's cover, we managed to steal a few minutes with him to discuss his guilty pleasures, which range from Roxette to, ahem, The Bible...

Series 2 of Derek begins on April 23 on Channel 4 at 10pm
