Are Ricky Gervais & Stephen Merchant still friends?

It would appear not even though no public statement about them falling out has ever been released.

Both do not follow each other on Twitter, and Stephen Merchant has not been involved in the making of the new David Brent movie David Brent: Life on the Road.

Considering Stephen was joint creator of the successful UK sitcom The Office, you would think he would be involved in anything which involves the David Brent character, but no.

Partner of Ricky Gervais, Jane Fallon, also does not follow Stephen Merchant on Twitter.

All these facts alone surely point in the direction of some sort of falling out.

Think about this for one minute. Had you and your “friend” spent years together, becoming millionaires together, you would surely follow one another on Twitter, even if not working together on projects.

Ricky Gervais was never friends with Stephen Merchant, Steve wanted to be friends (the type you hang about with), but I think for Ricky it was purely work. I got that impression from all the times Ricky would mention he met someone famous or something, Steve would ask where his invite was, or when Ricky & Karl would do something together, Steve never got an invite. All the TV shows they worked on had ended, they did what they needed to do, and I very much doubt they talk at all now, no break-up ever happened. Ricky just never liked him as a mate all that much... I had a work-mate like that once, and I was so relieved when we stopped working together as it becomes a bit much after a while, I feel the same happened with them, Ricky could not stand the sight of texts from him, or anything really...

It seems like it. Merchant stopped being involved with An Idiot Abroad on series 3. And after that, Ricky started to exclude Stephen when talking about The Office and Extras in interviews. He would say things like "When I wrote The Office, I wanted to..". Also worth mentioning, they don't follow each other on Instagram.

I totally agree there must have been some sort of fall out between them. I don't think Merchant had anything to do with the David Brent: Life on the Road movie, and surely if friends he would be involved as he was part of The Office. I also found it strange they do not follow one another on Twitter, why would two people who have worked for all those years together not do that!!!! Seems strange to me, but I am more upset because it means we will probably never get any more podcasts with all three of them again, that's the worse part of it all.
