Funnyman Ricky Gervais has confirmed his popular show Derek has ended.

The 53-year-old comedian, who plays the title character in the show, has been shortlisted for the Best Actor in a TV Comedy Series honour at the Golden Globes next month, revealed that he has no plans to make a new series.

In an interview with Graham Norton, Gervais said, "Like The Office and Extras there will only be two series and a special. For now, it's the end. It just feels right."
