Golden Globe Awards 2016: Ricky Gervais can't be happier for host Mel Gibson

Actor-comedian Ricky Gervais is delighted that Braveheart star Mel Gibson will be a presenter at the Golden Globe Awards 2016.

The annual awards show, hosted by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), which honours both film and television stars and shows, revealed that Gibson would be part of the show, on Twitter.

"Mel Gibson is presenting an award at The Golden Globes. Thank you Jesus," wrote Gervais, reports dailymail.co.uk.

The show will be a reunion of sorts for Gibson and Gervais as the actor, 60, last presented at the show in 2010 when the British comedian first hosted.

Gervais had introduced Gibson by saying: "I like a drink as much as the next man, unless the next man in Mel Gibson."

Gibson played along with the bit and came out slurring his words.

Twiteratti also reacted to the news of Gibson hosting the gala.

"Mel Gibson? What are you, desperate?" wrote one person on Twitter.

Another was a bit more blunt, writing: "Mel f***ing Gibson? You guys must be out of your minds."
