Russell Brand blasted Graham Norton for bringing up his failed marriage to Katy Perry during an interview on television.

The comedian was promoting his film Rock Of Ages on the chat show when Norton asked him about his failed marriage.

When his ex was mentioned, Brand said: "My mum is here. She got upset when you dragged up my marriage.

"I saw her cry, Graham. That’s the reality because it’s real people, Graham, that’s my real mum."

"I have come here to promote a film and you made my mum cry. I don’t see you as that sort of person, Graham."

Russell explained that Graham should have warned him before filming that he would mention his divorce after just 14 months with the singer.

He said: ''What I would have done mate is come up to me before the show and gone: 'Eh, listen. It's a bit odd that your ex-missus was on last week. I might mention it. Is that OK?' And I would have gone: 'Of course it is.'

''But in all of the chatting and the research, no-one mentioned it.''

Graham retorted: ''If I had not asked anything it would have been weird because Katy was on the show last week. That's the only reason.''
