Brand Is Sorry For Sachs Prank
LATEST: Comedian RUSSELL BRAND has apologised for a playing a lewd telephone stunt on actor ANDREW SACHS.
Brand was joined on his BBC Radio 2 programme by British chatshow host Jonathan Ross on 18 October (08), when the funnyman bragged about sleeping with Sachs' granddaughter.
The pair then made a series of on-air phone calls to the actor, leaving crude voicemail messages suggesting Brand had bedded 23-year-old Georgina on a sofa and a garden swing.
Fawlty Towers star Sachs, who had to cancel an appearance on the show due to unforeseen circumstances, was said to be "deeply upset" and "terribly hurt" by the prank - and now Brand has been forced to apologise for his actions.
On his weekend (25Oct08) show, Brand said he was sorry because "you musn't swear on someone's answer phone", before confessing that it was "funny".
BBC bosses claim they are "not aware of receiving a complaint from Mr Sachs".
Ross has refused to comment on the incident.
