Self styled Lothario Russell Brand was said to be making a good recovery, quietly at home after being pushed first into a fountain, and then into a urinal.
Incident number one happened in Trafalgar Square, London. Brand was filming a scene for upcoming movie 'Get Me To The Grease' which involved him acting as a drunken rock star frolicking in a fountain drunk. During filming, an overenthusiastic fan slipped by security personnel and managed to drag Brand under the water for a few terrifying seconds.
Brand declined to press charges against his assailant.
Incident number two occurred in the toilets of a particularly grotty West End pub, where according to sources, the star was pulled off his feet by an unknown assailant as he was 'watering the donkey' and forcibly pushed into the stinking, putrid, urinal trough. And rolled about in it, forcibly, for a bit.
It appears he stank to high heaven following the ordeal.
A friend of Brand's told us this morning that following a nice hot shower and a mug of hot chocolate, the star was fine.
But that he still whiffed of piss and urinal cakes.
More as we get it.
