Vanessa Feltz, a well-known television and radio presenter, has recently opened up about her unsettling encounter with comedian Russell Brand.
During her TalkTV drivetime show, Feltz shared her discomfort and offense at Brand's inappropriate comments about her daughters during a live television appearance in 2006.
Brand, renowned for his edgy humor, made a request that left Feltz, as well as the audience, taken aback.
He asked Feltz if he could engage in a romantic relationship with her daughters, stating, "Can I have it off with either you or your daughters?"
Feltz promptly and firmly responded with a resounding "No, you may not! No."
The exchange continued with Brand persistently joking about the matter, even suggesting the involvement of multiple individuals.
Feltz, clearly uncomfortable, consistently rejected these propositions.
She expressed her offense then and now, emphasizing that she found Brand's comments deeply offensive.
She recounted the awkwardness of being a guest on someone else's show and navigating the fine line between humor and discomfort.
She wondered whether she should have laughed along or taken offense, given the theater full of fans of the show's presenter.
This revelation has come to light in the midst of serious allegations against Russell Brand.
