Ricky Gervais’ former career as an aspiring pop star has resurfaced online, leaving fans both shocked and in awe of his former image.

Office creator Ricky, 62, began his attempt at a singing career in 1983, during his final year as a student at University College London, Gervais and his university friend Bill Macrae formed the new wave pop duo Seona Dancing.

They were signed to London Records, which released two of their singles; More than losing and Bitter heart. The songs failed to reach the UK Singles Chart.

Ricky has always been candid about his love of music (he previously called himself “a frustrated, failed musician”), and while he didn’t top the charts, he left his fans swooning when he resurfaced an ’80s performance on Thursday .

Tickled fans wrote: ‘Look at those cheekbones. What a trendy dish!… Jesus, what? OMG I thought he always looked like a 50 year old man… What the fuck?! I never knew this until now!…Wow!…Hi fok! This is REAL… There’s a certain Bowie swagger to him.’

While Ricky’s superfans will be well aware of his early career, a lot of Instagram users were amazed by the comedian’s previous career.

Despite his limited success in music, he achieved greater fame the following year with his BBC television mockumentary series, The Office in 2001.

Ricky shed light on the fact that music seeps into his television work, as he uses any medium to show his work as a “frustrated and failed musician.”

His most iconic creation, The Office’s David Brent, is also a failed musician, and Ricky released a mockumentary in 2016 following the fictional boss’ failed attempts to break the music charts.

Additionally, during David Bowie’s cameo in the second season of his hit show Extras in 2006, the esteemed artist began singing a song composed by Ricky.

In 2016, during an appearance on Graham Norton, he said: “I put a song into everything I do.” I wrote a song for The Simpsons, I wrote a song with David Bowie for Extras. I am a frustrated and failed musician.

Graham then showed a promotional photo from his Seona Dancing days, insisting that he had become shy because of his current appearance.

He said, ‘That’s called Seona Dancing, let’s move on. I’m not ashamed (of the old image), I’m ashamed (of my current appearance). Everyone’s like, ‘What the fuck happened?’ I’ll tell you what happened: the pizza happened.’

As his music career floundered, the superstar recently made history with his latest award, winning the first-ever Golden Globe in the new category for Best Stand-Up Comedy Performance on Television.

The British comedian previously insisted he had no chance of winning, but triumphed over Trevor Noah (Where Was I); Chris Rock (selective outrage); Amy Schumer (Emergency Contact); Sarah Silverman (Someone You Love) and Wanda Sykes (I’m an Entertainer).

He did not attend the ceremony in Beverly Hills on Sunday night, and comedian Jim Gaffigan accepted the award for Ricky’s Netflix special Armageddon on his behalf.

While Ricky is no stranger to Hollywood awards and previously won three Golden Globes for his work on The Office and Extras, his latest win certainly raised eyebrows among his fellow celebrities.

The comedian has not only angered several stars by calling Hollywood “disgusting, pill-popping, sexually deviant scum,” but he has also been criticized for his special Armageddon, in which he makes jokes about terminally ill children.

Additionally, during David Bowie's cameo in the second season of his hit show Extras in 2006, the esteemed artist began singing a song composed by Ricky.

Before the ceremony, Ricky told his followers on X, formerly Twitter: ‘I’m nominated for another Golden Globe tonight. This time for my Netflix special Armageddon. “I won’t win, but it’s good to still be up there in the mix, flying the flag.”

After her surprise win, she shared a selfie with her cat at her home in London while explaining her absence from the American awards show.

He wrote: “Thank you so much for all your lovely comments and kind words about my Golden Globe award. Best fans in the world. Tonight I’m playing a 200-seater in King’s Cross doing new material. The glamour. Have a nice day!’

Although many followers congratulated him, he was not exempt from criticism either.

Among those who have criticized the comic for his jokes is British disability charity Scope.

During the Netflix special, Ricky mocks Make-A-Wish requests, saying, “I always say yes (to their requests). And I always start the video the same way. I said, ‘Why don’t you did you want to improve? That? Are you a fucking retard too?”
