Capturing The Zeitgeist: Gervais made his BBC1 debut for charidee, going three rounds against Anthea Turner's hubby Grant Bovey.
In 2002, Bovey was the famous one - but a points decision in Gervais' favour proved symbolic. He's still a mainstay on the tear-streaked laughathon. Where's Bovey now?
The Ironic Smirk: Gervais was surprisingly serious about his bout. Later Comic Relief appearances have reverted to type, notably 2007's vicious send-up of clichéd celeb reporting from Africa.
