British comedy star Ricky Gervais has rubbished reports he turned down the chance to appear in TV cartoon The Simpsons.

The GOLDEN GLOBE-winner was reported to have rejected offers of a cameo appearance in the long-running hit show from its creator MATT GROENING - but a spokesperson for THE OFFICE star Gervais insists he's still considering the opportunity.

She says, "Ricky said he would love to so it might happen, but he won't be doing it as David Brent (his character in The Office)."
