An online video presenter linked to funnyman Russell Brand has told how she turned him down when he begged her for a date.
Emily Hartridge, an Internet video host, was said to have flirted with the Get Him to the Greek star following an interview in London during which he jokingly threw cake at her and licked cream off her elbow.
Hartridge has now spoken out to reveal Brand asked for her phone number after their chat but she snubbed his advances.
She tells Huffington Post Celebrity, "He did ask for my number but I didn't give it to him. I just don't want to go out with Russell Brand. I don't fancy him so why would I give him my number?"
