Russell Brand: All I want to do is watch TV

Russell Brand wants to come home and “hold hands” with his future wife in front of the television.

The 38-year-old British comedian’s divorce from Katy Perry was finalised last year.

He split from the singer just 14 months after they married in October 2010.

It is rumoured that teetotal Russell’s unwillingness to deal with Katy’s hard-partying lifestyle is part of the reason why they broke up.

Russell claims that although he may have a wild public persona, in reality all he desires are the simple things in life.

“I was talking to some friends yesterday and I thought, ‘Oh my God, the things I want are a wife and somewhere to live’,” he said during an interview on BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs show.

“However extraordinary and exciting I might like to present myself, in the end I’d just like to sit down and watch telly with someone and hold hands.”

Notorious ladies’ man Russell has been romantically linked to a number of women since splitting from Katy, including Geri Halliwell and Australian presenter Kate Peck amongst others.

Russell shared recently that he is now looking for the woman he will settle down with.

“I would like to marry again and have a family,” he told British newspaper the Daily Mirror. "I am looking for my future wife. I hope she’s kind and sweet and sexually adventurous. I don’t ask for much, do I?”

The funnyman is currently dating 23-year-old hotel heiress Alessandra Balazs.

The woman is the daughter of Chateau Marmont boss Andre Balazs whose girlfriend is talk show host Chelsea Handler.
