Gervais Abused At Awards Show

RICKY GERVAIS was subjected to a foul-mouthed tirade from British TV presenter RICHARD MADELEY last night (28MAR07), because he poked fun at the phone vote scam which has embroiled the chat show host's programme. The EXTRAS star was accepting the British Book Award for Children's Book Of The Year for his cartoon FLANIMALS OF THE DEEP via satellite link, when ceremony host Madeley told the comedian to "f**k off" and branded him an "ungrateful f**king b**tard". In his acceptance speech, Gervais quipped, "This is voted for by the public, isn't it? Well, tell them to stop voting now 'cos otherwise it will be another phone con!" British TV talk show RICHARD + JUDY, which Madeley presents with his wife JUDY FINNIGAN, was at the centre of a phone vote scandal earlier this year (07) when it was revealed viewers had been encouraged to enter competitions after a winner had already been chosen.
