Ricky Gervais has slammed the treatment of old folk in his native U.K., insisting the country needs to pull together to help its ageing population.
The Office creator stars as a worker in a residential care home in his new self-penned comedy Derek, and researching the show gave him a chilling insight into the problems faced by Britain's older generations.
He tells The Sun, "No one cares about old people in this country. There is a sort of army of youth, but getting old is the one thing that will happen to everyone."
