Breaking News: Russell Brand resigns from Radio 2

Well, at least he’s technically not been sacked this time!

XFM have just announced that Brand has resigned from his Radio 2 show over a prank phone call he made to former Fawlty Towers star, Andrew Sachs.

The BBC suspended him earlier today, along with his ‘partner in crime’ Jonathan Ross.

In a statement, the BBC apologised for the “gross lapse of taste by the performers and the production team.”

Ross has since made a formal apology through his solicitors, Schillings.More to follow.
