Oasis rocker Noel Gallagher is thrilled British comic Ricky Gervais has asked him to record a comedy version of FREELOVE FREEWAY for the Christmas special of TV satire The Office.

The WONDERWALL star, 37, provides backing vocals for the song Gervais wrote for the show's egotistical star David Brent, and stars as a corny rocker in The Office Yuletide DVD, out on 25 October (04).

Gallagher adores the hit series and Gervais' stand-up performance, POLITICS, and he begged TV presenter Jonathan Ross to introduce him to Gervais so he could organise a collaboration.

An insider says, "Ricky was well chuffed."
