One of the most brutal comedians ever to host the Golden Globes is coming back!

Ricky Gervais has been announced as the ceremony’s host for a record fifth time in January.

“Once again, they’ve made me an offer I can’t refuse,” Gervais said in a statement.

“But this is the very last time I’m doing this, which could make for a fun evening.”

The 58-year-old’s past performances have copped criticism after dividing audiences with his scathing comedic style, taking aim at Hollywood’s A-listers.

“I hope I haven’t offended anyone.

“It’s not my fault.

“I like a drink as much as the next man.

“Unless the next man is Mel Gibson.”
