British funnyman Ricky Gervais is experiencing a positive side to being famous - he sometimes gets given generous portions of takeaway food.

THE OFFICE star was surprised during a recent visit to a local fast food restaurant, when the person serving him dished out an extra large helping.

Gervais says, "I popped into my local Burger King, and the bloke who served me didn't let on that he recognised me, but as he handed me my food, he winked and said, 'I've slipped you a few extra chips (fries), Ricky.'"
