Ricky Gervais turns down 'disgusting' £1m to perform

Ricky Gervais has revealed he turned down a bank's £1 million offer for a corporate gig, calling the sum "disgusting".

"I was offered a million pounds to do 40 minutes at a Hong Kong bank. I said, 'No'", says the comedian, who is currently promoting his latest film, Cemetery Junction.

The 48-year-old told Newsbeat the bank then proposed a private jet to fly him to Hong Kong, but he turned that down too, telling them it was too far to travel.
