Ricky Gervais has come for Mrs Brown’s Boys, ahead of the National Television Awards.

The 58-year-old’s show, After Life, is going up against the BBC sketch show at the bash later this month.

 And, taking to Twitter, he shared a link to the NTA website, urging fans to vote for his series – so that Brendan O’Carroll’s offering didn’t take home the comedy crown. 

‘If you don’t vote for #AfterLife, Mrs Brown’s Boys will win,’ he told his 14.1million followers. 

Well, that isn’t necessarily true as both shows have some stiff competition from Sex Education, Derry Girls and Fleabag in the category. 

After Life follows the story of Tony (Ricky), who considers taking his own life after the death of his wife

He then decides to live, getting his own back on the world around him by saying whatever he likes.

 The first series of the Netflix show received rave reviews from fans, with the comedian confirming a second season would be on the way shortly.

 And he has since revealed we should be getting more of Tony and the gang in spring – with the second instalment focusing on what happens to Tony when he discovers things around him that make life worth living.

During a stint on the Graham Norton Show before Christmas, Ricky said: That will be next spring. I’m editing now and I’ll finish that after Christmas.

 ‘Then it takes two months to put it into, like, 120 languages. That’s why it takes so long.’

The Office creator also spoke about how warmly viewers had received After Life, adding: ‘I’ve never had a reaction like it and with social media now, you hear about it. It has been overwhelming and it’s the type of reaction as well.

 ‘People have been coming up to me on the street and saying “Oh, I lost my mum, or I lost my buddy”. I’m there thinking “Oh my God, everyone is grieving”.’
