The 'After Life' star praised the key-workers, who are "risking their health", after saying you'd never catch him complaining about isolating.

Comedian Ricky Gervais joined Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp via FaceTime to explain that you'd never catch him complaining about the lockdown, given other peoples' situation.

"Not when there's nurses doing 14-hour shifts, and there's people still going through it and risking their health," stated the The Office star.

Continuing, he said "I don't want to hear celebrities moaning that they've got nothing but a mansion to wander around in."

Ellen DeGeneres is one of the many celebrities who are coming under fire for their response to quarantining, after she opened her show comparing her home to prison.

"This is like being in jail. Mostly because I've been the same clothes for ten days and everyone in here is gay," joked the comic.

The second season of Ricky Gervais' After Life is available to stream on Netflix now.
