Ricky Gervais awkwardly asks woman to MOVE out of shot as he films After Life series 3

Ricky Gervais awkwardly asks woman to MOVE out of shot as he films After Life series 3 – just days after Richard Madeley gatecrashed his set

His security team recently escorted Richard Madeley from a pub when he failed to realise filming was taking place.

And Ricky Gervais was forced to ask someone else to move out of shot as he continued to shoot scenes for After Life series 3 in Hampstead Heath earlier this month.

The actor, 59, was joined by his character Tony Johnson’s beloved German Shepherd as he approached the woman, who was reading a book in the park during the sunny day in the English capital.

The producer, who was dressed in a brown coat and denim jeans, allowed filming to take place once the woman picked up her belongings and left the location. 

According to The Sun, an onlooker claimed the member of public appeared ‘unimpressed’ as she relocated from her spot. 

A few days earlier, presenter Richard, 64, was left red-faced after he interrupted the After Life set and was led away by security.

The broadcaster was seen turning up at a venue being used to film scenes for the next season of the hit show in his white VW car and trying to get a table.

Back in 2006, the host made a cameo in one of Ricky’s other hit shows when he appeared on the sitcom Extras which followed out-of-work actor Andy struggling to land jobs.

Richard played himself alongside other well-known TV hosts including his wife Judy Finnigan, Fern Britton and Phillip Schofield. 

Ricky, who stars in and writes After Life, confirmed filming for season three had started earlier this month. 

Last year, the funnyman discussed the difficulties he faced in writing the show amid the roaring success of its second series.

Speaking to Radio Times, the TV and film star admitted that following his iconic comedies The Office and Extras, he struggled to bring After Life to life due to the complexities of the story, which follows a widower’s grief.  

Since its release, After Life fans have been gushing over the second season, which continues to follow the story of grieving Tony – played by Ricky – as he begins to have his spirits lifted by his adoring support network. 

While local newspaper journalist Tony is still seen yearning for his late wife Lisa, he begins to perk up and vows to help his loved ones to improve their lives.

As well as Ricky, the cast includes Penelope Wilton, Ashley Jensen, Bill Ward, Tom Basden, Joe Wilkinson, Kerry Godliman, Roisin Conaty and Diane Morgan.
