Comedian and actor Ricky Gervais has confirmed he will bring back his Office alter-ego David Brent to star in a new project.

The character will feature in a series of YouTube videos titled Learn Guitar with David Brent, where the cult character will attempt to teach beginners how to play the guitar.

Started recording my new Youtube series "Learn Guitar with David Brent" today. Absurd. First part should be out by the end of the month.

Office manager Brent's obsession with his guitar and music career was a highlight from the popular BBC TV series:

Learn Guitar with David Brent will launch on Gervais' YouTube channel from June, with one new episode per month.

Gervais told the US programme The Daily Show last month that he believes the video-hosting site is the future.

"This is the future - people broadcasting themselves," he added. "YouTube's already the biggest broadcaster in the world."

The 51-year-old brought David Brent back for a Comic Relief sketch in March.

Viewers saw The Office boss perform with a rapper named Don Johnson as he attempted to launch a new career as a music producer.
