Russell Brand - Russell Brand jokes about 'sacred' marriage to Katy Perry

Russell Brand has joked about his ''sacred'' marriage to Katy Perry - insisting 14 months is long enough to be married.

The 37-year-old funnyman made his return to radio on British station XFM on Monday night (18.03.13), joined by special guest Noel Gallagher along with regular presenters Matt Morgan and Trevor Lock, and was surprised to learn the former Oasis rocker knew the exact length of his matrimony to the 'California Gurls' singer.

After being told his friends made a bet on how long his wedded bliss would last, which caused Noel to erupt with laughter, Russell exclaimed: ''Don't cackle, I tried my hardest. How come you know exactly how long my marriage was. Was you timing it?''

Noel responded: ''For the record, in the sweepstake I came the closest.''

Russell then continued to give humourous marital advice, making gags about his relationship with Katy - who he tied the knot with in a traditional Hindu ceremony in India in October 2010 and filed for divorce from in December 2011.

He said: ''Thanks, nice to know you're all behind me, very supportive, nice to know you're all supporting me. Let me tell you a thing about marriage. Marriage is a bond that can last up to 14 months. This is a sacred 14-month arrangement. Begins on an elephant. Ends in a newspaper.''

After his co-host Trevor mock the comedian's grand entrance at his nuptials, describing it as a ''solemn dignified journey on an elephant'', Russell admitted their union was tricky from the beginning.

He added: ''That marriage was shaky from the get go.''

Russell has had brief flings with several women since the separation, including Spice Girl Geri Halliwell, while Katy is in a relationship with musician John Mayer.
