Film star, comedian and former 'shagger of the year' Russell Brand has revealed he used to write, print and sell his own West Ham fanzine in the 1990s.
In an interview to plug his 'Messiah Complex' tour, the question of his love of the Hammers was raised and he laid bare his shocking past.
"Yes it is true" said the Essex boy. "I named the fanzine 'My Bubble Wubbles' a name I was really keen on, but no-one else seemed to like it. In the first issue, I lambasted the club owners and management for their treatment of Bobby Moore who was a club legend, but they ejected him from his seat for not having a ticket - when he should have been a club ambassador like Bobby Charlton was at Manchester United".
The long haired loon continued "I thought the fanzine would catapult me into the media, getting guest spots on BBC Radio and Match of The Day, and a column in the left wing Grauniad - but all of that never happened till much later when I shagged Kate Moss and got a television career off the back of that silly Big Brother debate show"
The fanzine failed to sell enough copies and Brand abandoned the project after one issue - but used the title 'My Bubble Wubbles' as inspiration for his first autobiography 'My Booky Wook'.
Brand is currently touring the UK with his stand-up show and definitely wants to sleep with you.
