Nigel Farage branded Russell Brand “rather rude” as he recalled their BBC Question Time clash.

The GB News presenter mirrored on the 2014 showdown as he mentioned the comic and actor dealing with sexual assault allegations.

Brand vehemently denies the accusations, which allegedly occurred between 2006 and 2013.

Speaking on his GB News present, the previous Ukip chief described the Essex-born star as “loud” and “coarse”.

He stated: “I’ve got to be honest, I am not a big fan of Russell Brand. He was this hard-left activist and I finished up being against him on Question time in 2014.”

Mr Farage then performed a clip of the fiery encounter because the pair rowed over immigration on the BBC programme nearly 10 years in the past.

In the heated debate, Mr Farage accuses Brand of not answering the viewers member’s query on if Britain is “overcrowded”.

Meanwhile, the comic insists the Brexiteer is “wrong” about immigration.

After the clip, Mr Farage went on: “Well, that was Russell Brand and I’ll never forget just before going on air he had his own two personal makeup assistants and they were combing his chest hair before we went on stage.

“So I assumed he was actually slightly loud, extremely coarse, slightly impolite, in all probability very badly broken by medication.

“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 five now that have come out of the woodwork.

“But let you know what offers me pause for thought is I perceive that by his YouTube channel and far else he has upset some very highly effective individuals. He’s upset huge authorities, he is upset Big pharma, he is upset Bill Gates and everyone.

“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 simply have a take into consideration this. His 2010 autobiography, which was known as Booky Wook, had this quote in it: ‘What form of a person was I? Treating girls on this means? If that is what I’m telling you, are you able to think about what’s being unnoticed?’

“I’m not here to pre-judge 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.”

A joint investigation printed over the weekend by The Times and The Sunday Times newspapers, alongside a TV documentary by Channel 4 Dispatches, revealed the allegations dealing with the 48-year-old, who stated on Friday that every one of his relationships have been consensual.
