    Ron told Daily Mail: "Is this seriously the most important thing happening in this world? Immigrants? Cost of living ? 10s of thousands killed in Ukraine ? Who is prioritising at BBC News. Who is really driving this vendetta?'.

    He added: "With many struggling to pay bills. The unproven accusations of 15 years ago take lead on BBC News?"

    Russell has strenuously denied any wrongdoing and blamed the "mainstream media" for the "litany of astonishing rather baroque attacks".

    He has been accused of rape, sexual assault and the abuse of four women, including one who was just 16.

    She alleged in Channel 4 documentary titled, Dispatches Russel Brand: In Plain Sight, that he took her virginity, was "preoccupied" with her being "innocent and pure" and often referred to her as "The Child".

    Russell has informed fans that he "absolutely cannot" talk allegations made against him.

    He denied all the allegations against him in a YouTube video on Friday evening (September 15) – slamming them as "aggressive attacks".

    The stand-up comic said there are "witnesses whose evidence directly contradicts the narratives" by The Sunday Times and Channel 4' Dispatches making a "co-ordinated attack".

    Russell previously opened up about his close bond with dad in his autobiography, My Booky Wook.

    He wrote about watching porn videos at his dad’s house when he was in primary school.

    When he was 17, the duo went on a trip to the Far East. and Ron hired three girls to go back to their hotel.

    He wrote: "I was sat on a bar stool with a Filipino called Mary-Lou. Then we were leaving in a cab with three Asian prostitutes my dad was drunkenly herding."

    He penned: "My dad set about unwrapping his two prostitutes.

    "I sat on the edge of the other twin bed. She must have known I was a virgin as soon as the bungling encounter commenced.

    "I stroked Mary-Lou's hair and kissed her cheek and traced my finger down her perfect nose, scored by the cacophony from the adjacent bedlam, "Yeah, come on!' and "Phwooar, you're juicy".'
