Russell Brand promised fans his relationship with Geri Halliwell will provide him with some ''good material''.

The British comedian enjoyed a brief fling with the Spice Girl after they both performed at the London Olympics Closing Ceremony last month and when questioned about the romance at his comedy show on Tuesday (04.09.12), he told fans it will inspire his future jokes.

According to The Sun newspaper, Russell said: ''Look, give me a year and I'll turn it into good material for you.''

Despite his crack, Russell did rush to Geri's defence when one audience member asked him: ''Is she ginger all over?''

He said: ''She's not got hair on her back. She's not like an orange Yeti.

''She's not like some hairy Jaffa Cake bear. She's still a person, she's still an actual person.''

However, Geri may not be impressed by his chivalry when she discovers he has already moved on to a new relationship with budding actress Aimee Levoir.

Friends of the beauty Russell calls ''my beloved Aimee'' were shocked when he showed up at her home in London last week with flowers before whisking her away.

One pal said: ''It was jaw-dropping, straight out of Pretty Woman as he whisked her off in a limo. They have known each other a while but suddenly things have gone up a level. She has discovered a deep Bond with Russell.''
