"RUSSELL AXED" screams the Daily Star. The report claims Russell Brand's been sacked by BBC 6Music and has lost out on a promised new spot on Radio 2. All because he's "too insane".
In fact, Brand has just been promoted to Radio 2, not sacked at all. Why would you sack someone who's just boosted a station's audience by 40%?
The BBC PR I speak to calls the Star "pathetic". The Star is owned by Richard "£1m a week" Desmond.
