“It is nice to be involved and you know I have been part of them all my life.“It is always lovely to get nominated and awarded but if you take it too seriously you are on a slippery slope.“If you really think you are anything special when you win an award, you have just won an award, that’s all, out of a few people and you won the award, so what?”Addressing the Queen's New Year's Honours list, Ricky continued: “Same as these honour lists.“When I see actors and people getting MBE’s and OBE’s for doing something they love.“That should go to nurses and soldiers and people who have really sacrificed all their lives.”Ricky has been outspoken on his views surrounding a range of topics within the entertainment industry.He sent shockwaves throughout Hollywood after roasting some of the industry’s most famous A-Listers as he presented the Golden Globe Awards in 2020.However, the controversial stint marked his last presenting gig for the prestigious awards.That same year Ricky said 2020 would be his last year as the host.In a recent interview with LADbible Ricky said he told the event organisers never to ask him back.The quick-witted comic explained that he feared he would cave and say "yes".Ricky said: "It could be the Golden Globes could offer me 10 million for 10 minutes work, and I'd be an idiot, I'd be a liar, to say I wouldn't consider it."But at the moment, given I've done it five times, it got better and better for me - I enjoyed them all, but it got better - and I'm planning never to do it again."I've asked them not to ask me because I can be persuaded, that's true."You know, it's not a principle.".

It’s palpable.“Why wouldn’t they be angry?“Myself and everyone kept to the rules.“I think I’ve been naive all my life, it’s only now that I think… why do we trust them?“Of course we shouldn’t trust the people in charge, that’s how they are in charge.“They shouldn’t be trusted,” the actor concluded.Now Ricky is preparing for the launch of season 3 of After Life on Friday, but filming the last six episodes of the show has been filled with challenges.The production process was put on hold during the coronavirus pandemic and Ricky even admitted he was anxious over whether or not the new season would go ahead.The third season was initially announced in May 2020 after season two was released in April 2020.Nearly a year later, filming finally kicked off and wrapped in June 2021.Ricky himself confessed the uncertainty of the pandemic caused him “anxiety”.He told Deadline on Friday: “It was a year of anxiety, thinking whether it would it go ahead.”“But we didn’t drop a minute due to Covid,” Ricky continued.
