Ricky Gervais is doing his bit for charity, he has created a new addition to the Flanimals, which will be unveiled this evening. The exclusive one-off  canvas created by Ricky Gervais goes on auction in support of the No Surrender Cancer Charity. The spur of the moment decision to create the wide-eyed wonder, christened Frong (Carpulous Gwenk), was taken after Gervais was approached to produce an original piece of art for the charity – which in recent months has auctioned canvasses by a range of top names including New Kids on the Block, KT Tunstall and the stars of Strictly Come Dancing.

Ricky’s contribution marks the beginning of a string of comedic themed auctions, the next featuring a canvas by Harry Hill. This is planned to mark the website’s re-launch and reflect the positive and upbeat message of the charity. Gervais has not yet commented on whether the new edition will feature in future books and the canvas goes on auction on eBay on Tuesday at 7pm.

When asked what type of creature Frong was he answered: “It pobbles a lot. It’s slightly snurbulent but nowhere near as snurbulent as as the Coddleflop, (and) it’s gwenkular. That’s where its name comes from.”
