Russell Brand returns to live radio

New show on Radio X

Russell Brand is to return to live radio this Sunday with a new show on Radio X. 

Brand will host Sunday mornings on the station from 11am to 1pm, with the show also being turned into a podcast.

The comic - who sparked the Sachsgate scandal on Radio 2 with Jonathan Ross - returns after an eight year hiatus from live radio. He previously presented on X Radio forerunner XFM.

Brand said: 'The show will be about joy, unity and togetherness. Sorry for any offence in advance.'

The comedian is replacing Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson in the slot.

Matt Deverson, Radio X's managing editor, said: 'Radio X is home to big personalities and we’re incredibly excited to be welcoming Russell back for his live radio return. He’s a huge talent and his Sunday morning show is going to become a must-listen for fans of his irreverent humour. He’s part of the Radio X family and we can’t wait to have him back on air.'

Radio X is on 104.9 FM in London, 97.7 FM in Manchester and on digital radio nationwide.
