Ricky Gervais Rushed To Hospital During Filming
Comedian's dose of gastric flu halts filming on his new sitcom Derek...
Filming on Ricky Gervais' new sitcom Derek was delayed last week after the star was rushed to hospital with stomach pains, it has been reported.
A doctor was called to the set of the Channel 4 show and the comedian was later diagnosed with gastric flu after having blood and urine tests, according to The Sun.
He later said: "In some scenes Derek will look a little paler and sweatier than usual."
Derek was commissioned for a full series following a pilot which was broadcast in April.
Gervais has recently hinted that he might "bring back" The Office manager David Brent.
