Ricky Gervais says he agreed to do a second turn as host of this year's Golden Globes because he wants "to do a proper job this time".

The comic, who presented the star-studded show in 2010, said he couldn't wait to take to the stage again this weekend.

"I don't think I went far enough," he said of his last appearance.

"Obviously not, because they invited me back. So, I'm going to do it again, do a proper job. And I guarantee they will not invite me back."

Ricky added: "I'm going to go out there, guns blazing, like it's the end of the world."

The 49-year-old promised he would never host the Globes again after the 68th annual awards on Sunday.

"That's nice to do such a good job you don't revisit it. It sounds arrogant and smug, but we thought that with The Office and Extras.

"We thought we put everything into it, and we can leave it there. So, I'd like to say I'm better the second time around. So, I should leave it there, if I do a good job or a bad job I mean, but who knows? It's once a year and it's so much fun."
