Nigel Farage has shared his thoughts on the allegations made against Russell Brand, as the Met Police announced they are investigating a complaint against the comedian.

Speaking on his GB News show, Farage, the presenter said he didn’t want to "prejudge" the 48-year-old’s behaviour towards women, following the allegations made.

Farage said: “As for his behaviour with women and other people, well, I don't know. It's not for me to judge. There's no evidence being produced. There are four people, maybe 5 now, that have come out of the woodwork.

“But you see, I understand that through his YouTube channel and much else, he has upset some very powerful people. He's upset big Government, he's upset Bill Gates and everybody.”

Farage continued: “But if you go out there and upset people, big powerful people, you've got to be pretty clear that there's nothing they can really hit you back with. Well just have a think about this. His 2010 autobiography which was called ‘Booky Wook’, had this quote in it.

‘What kind of a man was I treating women in this way? If this is what I'm telling you, Can you imagine what's being left out?’

“I'm not here to prejudge his guilt or his innocence, but there are many other things in his own autobiography that he's written about his behaviour with women that are disturbing, abusive and not very pretty.”
