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.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Gemini:

A friend will tell you about a job opening at their company. This lead will turn into a dead end. Don't set your hopes on this possibility. Instead of looking for another job, concentrate on fulfilling your duties. Tempers are running high. The last thing you want is to catch the attention of an irritable superior. If someone does criticise your work, remain silent. These remarks may be terribly unfair, but defending yourself will only make the situation worse. Breathe deep. This, too, shall pass.More
