Superstar singer Mariah Carey is begging British comedian Ricky Gervais for a cameo role in his new show EXTRAS.

The curvy BUTTERFLY singer "laughed herself hoarse at The Office", Gervais' GOLDEN GLOBE-winning TV show, and has approached BBC producers to talk about the possibility of taking a role in the star-studded new series.

A BBC source says, "We thought it was a wind-up when we got a call and were told Mariah wanted to speak to us.

"We were filming that day, but plan to hook up with her later in the series if she is in town."

The stellar cast of Extras already includes Kate Winslet and SAMUEL L JACKSON.
