From the unbelievable reaction on Twitter, one of the funniest scenes was when Derek newcomer, Geoff, was explaining to Derek what a humanzee was:
"It's basically a cross between a human and a chimpanzee. It looks like any human baby but it's covered in hair."
With Geoff's detailed description, it's time to launch our first Derek fan art competition of the new series, and we're teaming up with Colin Hoult (who plays Geoff) to give away some fantastic prizes! Colin would like you all to draw your very own humanzee!

How to enter: Follow Colin Hoult on Twitter (@wheeliemancrow), draw a humanzee (adult or baby) and tweet the picture to Colin with hashtag #Humanzee.
You have until 12noon on Tuesday, April 29th to get your entry in and Colin will be choosing three winners after the closing date. Each winner will win a pair of tickets to one of Colin's Brighton Fringe shows (from May 5th to 25th) and a picture of Derek signed by Ricky Gervais.
So what are you waiting for? Get your pictures in and good luck!
At Brighton Fringe, Colin performs all of his critically-acclaimed sell-out, weirdly wonderful comedy shows, fresh from his hit Radio 4 series - featuring bizarre, yet familiar characters, stand-up, song and sketches.
