First Benedict Cumberbatch and otters now Ricky Gervais and cats

The Sherlock star has long had his looks compared to an otter, now the Derek star is getting a similar treatment

We’ve enjoyed comparing shots of Benedict Cumberbatch with photos of otters for some time now.

The Sherlock star knows it happens – he was shown them while being interviewed on The Graham Norton Show. Cumberbatch didn’t seem to have too much of a problem with it (it Beats that #Johnlock artwork, right?), although he was slightly worried that one of the otters was doing a better Sherlock pose than him.

But Cumberotters are old news. These days, the cool kids are comparing Ricky Gervais… to cats. There’s even a Twitter hash tag: #catsthatlooklikerickygervais.

Here are some of his fan’s favourites…
