Ricky's side-splitting post comes days after he introduced an adorable new family member to the world.

Ricky's new cat 

Ricky appeared smitten with his new fluffy friend and told the story of how he came to adopt the pet, who was originally only meant to stay with him for a short while.

The A-lister explained that after his 16-year-old cat Ollie passed away at the start of lockdown, he and wife Jane decided to begin fostering as he wasn't keen on replacing their beloved Siamese friend for good.

However, it didn't take long for their first adoptee to steal the couple's hearts and become a permanent member of the Gervais family.

We have to admit, we couldn’t say no to that little face either!
