UPDATE: MET Police Now Seeking To Investigate Russell Brand Allegations – Force Issue Statement



The Metropolitan Police have approached Channel 4 and The Sunday Times while issuing a statement urging women accusing comedian and political commentator Russell Brand of sexual criminality to contact them.  

Four women have accused Brand of sexual assaults between 2006 and 2013 while the comedian was working as a television presenter, in a joint investigation by The Sunday Times and Channel 4 Dispatches.

A Met Police spokesperson said this evening: “We are aware of media reporting of a series of allegations of sexual assault. At this time, we have not received any reports in relation to this.

“If anyone believes they have been the victim of a sexual assault, no matter how long ago it happened, we would encourage them to contact police.

“We spoke with The Sunday Times on Saturday 16 September. We will be making further approaches to The Sunday Times and Channel 4 to ensure that any victims of crime who they have spoken with are aware of how they may report any criminal allegations to police.”

Multiple women have accused Russell Brand of sexually assaulting them while he was a presenter for Channel 4's Big Brother.

Meanwhile, the BBC said in a statement: “The documentary and associated reports contained serious allegations, spanning a number of years.

“Russell Brand worked on BBC radio programmes between 2006 and 2008 and we are urgently looking into the issues raised.”

A Channel 4 spokesperson said: “We have asked the production company who produced the programmes for Channel 4 to investigate these allegations and report their findings properly and satisfactorily to us.

“Channel 4 is also conducting its own internal investigation, and we would encourage anyone who is aware of such behaviour to contact us directly.”

None of the women accusing Brand were under the age of consent when they allege that the crimes took place.

It is understood that none of the accusers have ever made complaints about Brand’s conduct to the police.


Only one of the victims has provided evidence to partly support her claim. This comes in the form of a damning text message that has been verified by journalists as being sent by Brand himself. Read our full report on the allegations here.
