Host Graham Norton questioned Gervais over a scene where Brandy couldn’t stop licking him.

“I don’t know, she was just meant to lick and she got carried away,” Gervais explained. “Maybe it was my hair gel but I took it as real affection.”

“I said goodbye to the cast and crew on the last day, but when I said goodbye to the dog, that is when I nearly cried,” Gervais recalled. “Cause I was thinking ‘she doesn’t know why she won’t see me again.’ I probably over estimated how sad the dog was not to not be seeing me.”
