image for Ricky Gervais to star in Sesaeme Street
Sam the Bald Eagle, discussing Economics of Scale on a TV near you soon

A famed Bafta winning writer is to appear alongside a number of strange characters on American TV.

Elmo, the beloved red monster star of Children's Favourite Sesaeme Street, and part time writer of The Wire is to share screen time with Ricky Gervais.

Gervais, famed for not being the tall one who wrote the Office and Extras said: 'There are somethings you just don't turn down'

It is understood that he will play a counting game with Elmo, discuss the economic climate with Sam the Bald Eagle and Oscar the Grouch, swap cookie recipes with the new slim-line Cookie Monster, and play hide and seek with Big Bird, who is to undergo a triple bypass operation in three weeks.

This appearance follows Gervais's writing and starring in an episode of the Simpsons. It is understood that Jonathan Ross has been asked to carry Gervais's bags.
