Funnyman Ricky Gervais stripped off to take a bubble bath with reluctant U.S. Tv host Conan O Brien on Wednesday (09Jan13).

The comedian has taken to posting odd photos of himself in the bathtub online and when three were shown during his appearance on Conan, he insisted the tall Tv personality join him for a quirky snapshot.

As a bubble bath was wheeled out onto the set, both men stripped to their underwear and climbed in.

Gervais then took a camera phone shot of the odd couple.
