Ricky Gervais: The worst part of getting older is saggy balls!

Los Angeles - Ricky Gervais wants to live long enough to trip over his "pendulous testicles".

The 55-year-old comedian has admitted everything about growing old is "bad", he panics every morning in case he doesn't wake up, and loves nothing more than having his daily alcoholic tipple.

Speaking about the ageing process on The Tonight Show, the funnyman - whose long-term partner is author Jane Fallon - said: "I don't know where to start.

"I wake up in the morning now and go, 'Oh God I didn't die.' I just ache. I look forward to having a drink. At 6 o'clock I have a drink and it's all OK and I fall into bed.

"When I get up in the morning I have to walk downstairs like that (waddles). I've got a stiff back and stiff legs. I'm losing the hair. It's all bad.

"Pendulous testicles. Honestly. I'm hoping to live long enough to actually trip over them."

However, the The Office star has revealed he has learnt a lot about his genitalia in his later years.

He explained: "I didn't realise until I was 50 that testicles float in the bath. They look like a couple of little hot air balloons taking off from the forest."
