Ricky Gervais has revealed which A-listers he'll be targeting at this weekend's Golden Globes.

The Globes host joked on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in the US that Charlie Sheen and Mel Gibson could be the subject of his put-downs.

According to Access Hollywood, he tells the show: "Charlie Sheen has obviously put his head above the parapet. Like last year, Mel Gibson was a gift from the comedy god. So yeah, that'd be two good people out of the audience."

The funnyman, who is hosting the event for the second consecutive year, said that he was not worried about potential comebacks.

He joked on the show, which is being broadcast in the US on Thursday: "I'm not going to have a go at Russell Crowe or Mickey Rourke. Mickey Rooney maybe. Betty White, I'm not scared of her. You've got to choose your targets wisely."

Despite his success, Ricky recently revealed he was mistaken for his former radio producer Karl Pilkington as he left an LA shop.

He wrote on his blog: "Left the shop just as one of those celebrity spotting tour buses was going by. Now this is absolutely true. The people started waving at me and as I waved back, the driver wound down his window and shouted, 'Karl Pilkington's got a head like a f***ing orange'. Amazing."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
