Ricky Gervais convinced aliens are useless ‘big slugs’ who eat their own poo
Comic Ricky Gervais believes mankind will be heartbroken when we eventually meet aliens as they'll be "f** useless" talking slugs that eat their own poo.
The funnyman reckons the blobby extra-terrestrials probably won't have much intelligence as being smart could be a handicap on their planet.
Ricky, 59, who doesn't believe in God, does believe in aliens, citing the existence of humans as proof that life could spring up anywhere in the cosmos under the right circumstances.
He said: "Some people say, 'Well, if you don't believe in God, do you believe in aliens?'
"Well, it's not the same thing, because I don't believe in God because I have no evidence, and it seems man-made and very unlikely.
"Whereas, however unlikely aliens are, we're proof that there is a lifeform in the universe.
"I haven't got proof of any god – whereas I have got proof of a lifeform in the universe. We're proof – us.
"There's been hundreds of millions of examples of lifeforms on a planet warmed by the sun.
"So there's no reason not to believe there are aliens of some sort."
Ricky once dressed as a slug-like alien for an episode of his Extras sitcom that saw him play the being in Doctor Who.
He said the odds of life springing up is "astronomical" as it depends on so many environmental factors including the size of planets and the positioning of a sun.
But he believes, because there are billions of planets, it has probably happened elsewhere in the universe.
Pessimistically predicting people won't be meeting little grey or green men any time soon, Ricky ranted: "I don't know if it's intelligent like us.
"If billions of years produces something, it may be something else – intelligence may not be an advantage.
"People think they're going to see this little thing that's got bilateral symmetry, with intelligence and dexterity.
