Ricky Gervais slams wealthy celebrities groaning in isolation as NHS heroes lose lives


Ricky Gervais has no sympathy for the millionaire celebrities who groan over isolation in huge mansions while NHS staff die in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

The 58-year-old comedian, whose second series of After Life is slated to be released on Netflix later this month, was squarely in his thoughts about the rich stars lamenting their plight.

This was heightened by singer Sam Smith who cries on Instagram as he struggles to cope with self-isolation in his £ 12 million house.

Speaking to the Sun, Gervais said, “After it’s over, I never want to hear people complain about the welfare state again, I never want to hear people complain about nurses again. Or carriers.

“These people work 14-hour shifts and don’t complain. Wear masks and end up with sores after selflessly risking their own health and that of their family. ”

He then turned his wrath on celebrities who think they are having trouble, saying, “Then I see someone complaining about being in a mansion with a pool. And, you know, honestly, I just don’t want to hear it. ”

Ricky is estimated to be worth more than £ 100 million after successes with The Office and Extras set the stage for a Hollywood career before adding Derek and After Life to his sitcom resume.

Ricky Gervais says some people have a lot to be thankful for

Certain sharp appearances like a series of American awards have helped keep his profile high and there is always huge interest when he decides to visit his stand-up.

It all started in a much more humble environment in the Reading district in the late 1960s, the feminine side of her family having a history of caregivers.

Speaking of his working father and caring mother, Ricky said, “The men worked hard, but the women worked miracles. Because when my father finished his work, it was his own time.

“But my mother did not stop working, the women did not stop working. The caregivers did not stop working, all the women in my family were caregivers in some ways. “

Ricky said it took him until he was 40 before he started to be financially rewarded for his comedic efforts and greeted his mother with “everything I wanted except money”.

He added that as he grew up he soon realized that the best things in life were free.

Ricky said, “Friends, nature, learning and health care. And that’s why I gladly pay my taxes. And that’s why I hit the NHS. “
