Brand defends Ginger Spice at gig

Russell Brand begged fans not to ask him about Geri Halliwell

Russell Brand was forced into joking about Geri Halliwell at his gig after he was asked about his former flame.

The funnyman sprang to the defence of Ginger Spice, but couldn't resist adding a comic touch.

When a heckler asked him "is she ginger all over?", he replied: "Don't be dirty," The Sun reported.

"She's not got hair on her back. She's not like an orange Yeti," the newspaper quoted him as saying.

"She's not like some hairy Jaffa Cake bear. She's still a person, she's still an actual person."

Russell reportedly begged the audience not to ask him about her, but joked: "Look, give me a year and I'll turn it into good material for you."

After the gig, to raise funds for a local rehab centre, Russell is said to have travelled back to Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, where he is said to have spent Monday night with a new woman.

If you act like you don't care about the outcome of a situation, they won't be paralysed with uncertainty. You have a tendency to make people nervous.More
