Russell Brand ''really loves'' Jemima Khan.

The 38-year-old comic - who split from Katy Perry in December 2011 after just 14 months of marriage - says his relationship with the magazine editor is ''very different'' from anything he has ever experienced and he couldn't be happier.

Appearing with Jemima's dog on an episode of 'The Jonathan Ross' show airing tomorrow (18.01.14), he was asked what would happen to the pooch if they split, prompting him to reply: ''Don't say that mate, I really love her. That would hurt my little heart.

''I'm going to be really kind in this relationship. I haven't been out there trying to nail everyone

''I'm very, very happy in a relationship that feels very different from anything I've experience before. I feel like its grounded in friendship and a sort of love and it's all well cool and exciting and stuff, but it feels different for me.

''She's a gorgeous, beautiful woman. I'm still superficial. I'll still only go out with top crumpet.''

Russell - who has previously battled addictions to heroin, alcohol and sex - has been embracing his spiritual side and things that has helped his life become more positive.

He added: ''I've been meditating and thinking about spiritual stuff and I feel very, very relaxed now. As a result of that I think I've magnetised more positive things towards me.''
