Bremner gets Brand new look

Here is Rory Bremner dressed as Russell Brand, cheekily grinning by a microphone and looking uncannily like the long-haired comedian when he made his prank calls to Andrew Sachs.

Bremner also sends up TV chef Gordon Ramsay, who recently told the Sunday Times how he had to sell his Ferrari to help put his restaurant empire back on track.

The impressionist also lampoons Gordon Brown’s attempts at smiling.

A brand-new three-part series featuring the satirical skills of acclaimed trio Rory Bremner, John Bird and John Fortune, starts this Sunday.

Those behind the show said: “From greedy MPs to media scandals, the cult of celeb chefs and the Sachsgate affair to financial disaster and the PM’s much-derided YouTube grin, modern Britain is in meltdown.”

They claim the team will “cast their collective sardonic eye over the chaos engulfing our culture to learn how naming and shaming may be the next best thing to a recovery, and the one thing in which we can still lead the world”.

'Bremner, Bird and Fortune: The Last Show Before The Recovery' is on at 7pm on Sunday, June 7 on Channel 4.
