The One Show: Ricky Gervais talks about his taboo jokes

Today (Thursday 11 May) Ricky Gervais, 61, took to social media to share that he’s spent the night suffering from “severe abdominal pains” and throwing up bile.

He made the revelation via Twitter, where he told his 15.1 million followers: “I’m not well today. In fact I’d say I just lived through the worst eight hours of illness of my life.

“Severe abdominal pains, vomiting every time I moved (but only tiny bits of bile), hot sweats and chills.

“Oh, and I really want to know who planted the 12 gravy bombs up my a***,” he joked.

Another user, who has apparently experienced a similar illness, told the outspoken comedian that his sounded like the winter vomiting bug, Norovirus.

They wrote: “Sounds like it is Norovirus that is going around.

“My friend and my daughter and son-in-law have had it. It is awful. Hope you get better soon.”

Gervais has since confirmed the fan’s suspicions by replying: “Yeah that’s what I thought.”

Much like Gervais has detailed, norovirus sufferers can experience everything from headaches and chills to bouts of vomiting and even diarrhoea.

The bug is thought to be spread through close contact with another sufferer, touching contaminated surfaces, and even eating infected food.

In March, the UK Health Security Agency revealed norovirus activity has increased notably in those aged 65 years and over.

However, according to the NHS, there’s, unfortunately, no known treatment for norovirus.

So, it looks as if the After Life comedian will have to wait for the stomach bug to run its course in the next two to three days.

While it’s expected that Gervais will make a full recovery after the weekend, fans will still be praying that he is fit and fighting for his forthcoming Armageddon UK and Ireland tour.

The string of 2023 shows will see the outspoken comedian hitting up Cambridge’s Corn Exchange on Monday, May 22, before stopping off in Manchester, Cardiff, and Liverpool.

In September, Gervais will head back out on the road for a ten-night residency at The London Palladium.

The final chance to see Gervais in 2023 will be at Wembley’s 12,500-capacity OVO Arena on Friday, October 20 and Bristol Beacon on December 11 and 12.
