The Muppets And Ricky Gervais Take London
Comedian in stitches as he larks about with famous puppets on red carpet...
Ricky Gervais was reduced to hysterics by his hand-operated co-stars at the London premiere of Muppets Most Wanted last night.
The comedian was joined on the red carpet at the Curzon Mayfair by Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and a selection of human stars from the movie.
The sequel to 2011's successful The Muppets, the new film sees the much-loved characters riding the crest of a wave after their successful showbiz comeback.
But while on a global tour they are targeted by an evil Kermit lookalike called Constantine and his human sidekick, played by Gervais.
Directed by James Bobin, the new film also features Ty Burrell and Tina Fey in key human roles along with a galaxy of famous fans in cameos - including Lady Gaga, Puff Daddy, Zach Galifianakis and Tom Hiddleston.
It is released in UK cinemas on 28 March.
