Cat Deeley found keeping a straight face while filming 'Life's Too Short' with Ricky Gervais more difficult than remembering her lines
Cat Deeley found keeping a straight face on 'Life's Too Short' more difficult than remembering her lines.
The 34-year-old TV presenter - who appears alongside Ricky Gervais in the new comedy, which is a fictional day-to-day account of dwarf actor Warwick Davis and his talent agency, Dwarves for Hire - admitted being professional was tough in such a funny environment.
She said: "I've recently been filming with Ricky Gervais for his new BBC comedy, 'Life's Too Short'. It was such good fun and actually harder to keep a straight face than it was to remember the lines. I'm not very good at lines."
However, Cat - who shot to fame presenting kids' Saturday morning TV show 'SM:TV' alongside Ant and Dec in 1998 - still misses the "ridiculousness" of her time on 'SM:TV'.
She added to Stylist magazine: "I definitely miss the ridiculousness of 'SM:TV'. I like general goofiness. There are people who self-edit themselves before they do or say anything, but I've never felt that I've got to create a character."
