Twitter adds dancing David Brent emoji

TWITTER has added a David Brent emoji.

To celebrate the upcoming release of 'Life of the Road' featuring Ricky Gervais' hilarious character from 'The Office', the micro-blogging app has introduced an emoji of Brent dancing, which will show up every time someone hashtags BrentsBack.

The Twitter account for the new movie posted a message which read: "FACT: @twitter are giving David Brent his own emoji! Tweet with #BrentsBack."

Twitter UK wrote: "What better way to celebrate the @DavidBrentMovie than with our exclusive Brent emoji? #BrentsBack."

And Ricky tweeted: "For all the people like me who are a bit luddite, all you have to do is type #BrentsBack and the little David pops up automatically :)"

Ricky previously revealed the new movie will explore the private life of David.

He said: "I'm so excited that the world will see what David Brent is up to now and where his future lies.

"This film delves much more into his private life than 'The Office' ever did, and we really get to peel back the layers of this extraordinary, ordinary man."

Ricky's latest project is being made without the help of his long-time friend and co-writer Stephen Merchant, who was also the co-director of the original sitcom.

A source close to the situation previously said: "Ricky has every right to do a David Brent movie on his own but fans will understandably be gutted to have it confirmed that Stephen is not involved at all.

"Together they created one of the all-time classic TV shows with 'The Office', and all their projects as a team have been so well received."
