Ricky Gervais plans to get drunk while hosting Golden Globes

Los Angeles - Ricky Gervais plans to get drunk at the Golden Globes. 

The comedian is returning to host the show for the fourth time and admitted he won't be entirely sober when he takes over proceedings at the 73rd annual awards show. 

Speaking to chat show host Ellen DeGeneres, he said: "If I didn't drink, I wouldn't be brave enough to say some of the things I'm going to say."

When Ellen asked: "So in what hour do you start drinking before the show?" he quipped: "Well, it starts very early, so I probably have a little one. So, you know, I start at a reasonable hour - I'm not a maniac - three or four or something like that."

Ricky, 54, who previously hosted in 2010, 2011 and 2012, admitted he initially turned down the chance to return as presenter but relented when he was told he could say whatever he wanted.

He explained: "I really did say 'no'. I was editing one film I made this year and I was about to film another one, and I just thought, I just haven't got the time, but they said all the right things. They said I could say what I want again."
