CONTROVERSIAL comedian Russell Brand has admitted to having sex with a man in a bar toilet, purely for a television show.
Brand made the confession to fellow comic Richard Herring during a podcast interview.
Brand told how he performed the act as it was filmed for a TV documentary series when he was a heroin addict.
He said: "I w***** off a man in a toilet. I thought, ‘I think of myself as heterosexual but perhaps that’s ‘cause of the environment that I grew up in where homosexuality may have been difficult for me to express.’”
The show - called RE:Brand - was aimed at exploring social taboos, said Brand.RELATED: Katy Perry on Russell Brand Divorce: I Felt "Punched," "Kicked," "Was in Bed for Two Weeks"
"I trawled around Soho going to various gay bars, gay gyms trying to pick people up with a film crew.
"I went in this pub and I goes: ‘Anyone want me to w*** them off?’ And this bloke goes, ‘Yep’. Like as if I was saying: ‘Does anyone want a packet of crisps from the bar.’"
He said: "So we goes to the lavvy - me, him, the director - and he gets his willy out. And it was not nice. The phallus is... I like mine and you see some others in paintings that look all right but his looked like a rag.
"And we're in the toilet with the director standing there filming me and he goes, ‘I think it would be easier if I was able to touch yours’. I thought ‘F****** hell mate, do us a favour!’ And the director goes: 'Go on Russell it would be funny.’
"So I take down my trousers and pants and then the bloke sort of mauled at my genitals while I w***** him off."
Brand, of course, has battled both sex and drug addiction. He’s currently said to be dating Jemima Khan, ex-wife of cricketer, Imran Khan.
