Ricky Gervais' Sausage Feast

Ricky Gervais went on a sausage binge before starting his diet.

The comic actor has recently shed 14lbs but says he wanted to indulge himself before he limited his daily calorie intake.

The 48-year-old star said: "The two days before I went healthy I had 11 sausages... I couldn't stop eating them, I felt really ill, really bad and I had to lay there for a couple of hours. like a snake just trying to digest it. It was just after Christmas, a few days before I thought right, that's ridiculous. I think I hit 196lbs. I just got fatter from 29. I've been putting on weight."

Ricky - who shot to fame playing David Brent in the British version of 'The Office' - says he is now determined to embrace his new healthier lifestyle on a long-term basis.

He said: "I turned my life round at the last minute."

With election fever currently sweeping the UK, Ricky admits he would not stand to be Prime Minister because it's such a tough job.

He said: "It's thankless task. If I was to be Prime Minister, I'd immediately go grey before my years."
