Russell Brand returns to Xfm.. for a week

Russell Brand is returning to Xfm, along with his former talkSPORT co-host Noel Gallagher, to present a series of shows during March.

The shows will mark this year’s Teenage Cancer Trust gigs, and will also see Brand re-united with his old producer Matt Morgan.

Brand started his radio career at Xfm in 2002 but he was fired for reading out what was considered as pornographic material live on-air.

Noel told Xfm presenter and Sun columnist Gordon Smart: “Xfm asked me if I wanted to do my own radio show leading up to this year’s TCT concerts. I said, I have a better idea. Why don’t we resurrect whats-his-name’s career? That hairy skinny-legged yogameister, Rustle Brand? Last seen shaming the nation at them Olympics…

“It’ll be great to remind people how colossal me, Matt Morgan and Mr Gee were on that bloody show before ‘Arthur’ got us all the sack. Tune in and see if I’m wrong.”

Russell told Gordon: “I miss radio. It was lovely when we did the show. It’ll be great to get the old team back together.”

This was the show that landed Jonathan Ross and Brand in trouble over the whole Andrew Sachs “Sachsgate” affair.

A Global Radio spokesperson told RadioToday: “We can confirm that Russell Brand and Noel Gallagher will be doing a special show for Xfm. Full details for the show will be released in due course.”

The TCT shows start on March 19 and run through to March 24 2013.
