This is the end - fact

Gervais vows to kill off The Office

Ricky Gervais has vowed that The Office will never return after this year's Christmas specials.

And he said that nothing would ever tempt him back to the multi-award-winning sitcom after its two festive editions.

He told Heat magazine: "If every project from this Christmas to when I'm fat and 50 - as opposed to fat and 40 - is the most abysmal thing ever, I still won't do that. This is the end of the story."

His writing partner Stephen Merchant added that the final BBC2episodes would be the "same jokes, but with tinsel and David Brent in a Santa outfit".
