London: British comedian Ricky Gervais is set to return to Golden Globe Award in 2011 as a host of the ceremony.

Gervais will present the prestigious ceremony for the second time next year.

"I suppose it is flattering, to be honest, and it was a surprise. I had so much fun last year. I`m going to go out all this time. I`m going to make sure they`re never going to invite me back," femalefirst.co.uk quoted him as saying.

"I can`t believe they invited me back after awful things I said. Let`s see how far I can take it this time," he added.

However, president of the Golden Globes Philip Berk said he is delighted to see him return.

He said: "We are thrilled to have Ricky back as the host of the Golden Globe Awards. His combination of wit, irreverence and spontaneity makes him the ideal host. He was fantastic last year, and he`ll be even better the second time around."
