Actress Kate Winslet has appealed to British funnyman Ricky Gervais for the chance to star in another episode of his hit comedy Extras.

The TITANIC star loved satirising her public persona for the first series of the show, and praises Gervais' use of British humour.

She says, "It was fun taking the p**s out of myself. That's something that truly reminds you that you're British.

"When you can laugh at yourself it's very healthy. I'd beg to be in the next series if they'd have me."

Hollywood actors including Ben Stiller, Samuel L Jackson and Vinnie Jones have all appeared made guest appearances on the show.
