British funnyman Ricky Gervais will steal cartoon matriarch Marge Simpson from her husband HOMER in a forthcoming episode of the hit animated TV show.

The star and creator of cult comedy The Office, Gervais, has become the first Briton to write an episode of the show, and couldn't resist giving himself a role in it, as the one man to come between the celebrated couple.

He has even penned a romantic ballad for Marge, which he will record in Los Angeles this June (05).

Gervais says, "I've written a song that my character will sing to Marge. It's a love song, but I don't want to say an more at the moment."
