因此, it won him a whole new legion of followersincluding a surprising amount of children and older adults.

In an exclusive interview with The Sun’s TV Mag, the 60-year-old quipped: “Not in real life, but they do ask that in fan mail.

“The most frequent request is ‘Can you call me a tubby ginger c***?’ That’s the most popular line from the show.”

Since launching on Netflix in 2019, After Life has become one of the most-watched series in its history, with over a 100million views worldwide.

But Ricky insists that’s not what motivates him.

“I do this as a job. I love it, but I do it as a job and I do it to get paid,“ 他加了.

“I’ve never done it for the awards, or acclaim, or ratings or whatever. I do it because I love doing it and someone pays me to do it.
