Brand and Ross reunite

CONTROVERSIAL double-act Russell Brand and Jonathan Ross are teaming up again to promote a new book.

They suffered a fall from grace over the Sachsgate affair when they left lewd messages on the phone of actor Andrew Sachs.

It was announced that Ross will interview Brand at the London date of his new tour. Their appearance at the end of the month at the Hackney Empire is part of a promotional tour for Booky Wook 2 – the follow-up to Brand’s first volume of memoirs.
