THE OFFICE star Ricky Gervais was shocked when he discovered he was 'working class' - when he went to university.

The British funnyman studied at a London University where he met his TV producer wife JANE FALLON and was initially surprised at how common his accent sounded in comparison to his posh peers.

He says, "I did not even realise I was working class until I got to university and everybody talked like Prince Charles.

"Money had always been tight at home. But it never occurred to me."
