Vanessa Feltz has reacted to a resurfaced interview between her and Russell Brand that saw the comic make crude comments about her daughters.
Feltz, who recently starred on Celebs Go Dating, featured on Brand's chat show 1 Leicester Square back in 2006 and, amid the allegations Brand is facing, Feltz addressed their 'awkward' chat.
Following the release of a bombshell Dispatches programme on Channel 4 over the weekend, Brand has been accused of sexual assault by a handful of women - some who anonymously took part in the documentary.
Channel 4 worked with The Times newspaper on the year-long investigation.
The Times claims it has since been contacted by 'several women' with further claims about Brand.
Prior to the episode airing on Saturday night (16 September), Brand issued a statement via social media where he denied the 'very serious criminal allegations'.
With Brand now being a talking point, Feltz reflected on her own interactions with the Despicable Me star over the years.
Discussing the matter on TalkTV, 61-year-old Feltz said: "I met Russell Brand when I was a guest on E4's Big Brother's Big Mouth, and our career paths crossed quite naturally over the years.
"On other occasions I met him as a friend, I met him on various shows and one of those occasions was in 2006 when I appeared on his chat show, 1 Leicester Square."
Feltz then proceeded to show a clip from their conversation, where Brand asked her if he could 'have it off' with her daughters.
She shares daughters Allegra, 37, and Saskia, 34, with ex-husband Michael Kurer.
"Can I have it off with either you or your daughters?" Brand asked her at the time.
"No you may not," replied Feltz.
"Come on, some of them are adults," Brand went on to say as Feltz continued to say no.
It's believed Feltz's daughters were around the ages of 20 and 17 at the time of her interview.
Upon reflection, Feltz said she was put in a very 'awkward position' as she was a guest on Brand's show and was in a theatre full of his fans.
She said: "I was in this unbelievably awkward position where you don't quite know what to do.
"Are you meant to pretend you think it's funny and laugh along? Are you meant to stand up and walk out in high dudgeon and look like you're a spoil sport and a party pooper?"
Feltz added that she was 'deeply offended' at the time, and still is.
