He went on: ‘By the last one it was like, “God, give it to them, we hate celebrities!”‘ 

He infamously hosted the event back in 2020, where various celebrities were the butt of his biting jokes. 

Ricky made jokes about Leonardo DiCaprio dating younger women, while he called out various celebrities for cosying up to Jeffrey Epstein and Harvey Weinstein. 

He also commented on the fact that the public do not like ‘virtue signalling’ from celebrities anymore and that they do not ‘like to be lectured.’

He said: ‘The people with nothing became tired of being lectured by people who had everything.’

He also pondered the fact that the show may be coming to an end after this next year due it being all online, as the ceremony heads behind closed doors.

Ricky found fame 20 years ago playing David Brent on The Office, but has since come out with his Netflix series Afterlife. 

He stars as Tony Johnson, a depressed newspaper journalist, who wants to kill himself because his wife died of cancer.

He told the publication that he hopes his role as Tony will be what he is most known for, and not David. 

Although the show has found resounding success, Ricky is adamant he will not to a series four as he thinks it is best to ‘stop on top’ even though it ‘makes more sense moneywise’ to keep the show running. 

He also said the next step in his career will be getting back onto the road and doing stand up.
