TV star Piers Morgan has shared his perspective on allegations comedian Russell Brand is facing after he was accused of rape, sexual assaults and emotional abuse during a seven-year period.

The allegations, which Brand, 48, strongly denies, were made in a joint investigation by the Sunday Times, The Times and Channel 4's Dispatches.

 Before the programme aired last night, the Get Him to the Greek star released a statement, which can be read in full here, claiming his 'transparency regarding his promiscuity' has been 'metastasized into something criminal'. However, after the bombshell documentary, in which Brand was branded a 'devil', a 'groomer' and a 'narcissist' by his alleged victims, comedian Jo Caulfield claimed "people could have stopped" the actor - who is also known as Rusty Rockets.

Meanwhile, former Good Morning Britain star Piers Morgan took to X, formerly Twitter, writing: "The allegations against Russell Brand are horrifying, & the investigative reporting behind them exemplary. BUT he’s denied them & language being used on here - his accusers being labelled ‘victims’ or ‘survivors’ etc - infers guilt + criminality. He's entitled to due process."

Four women have accused Brand of sexually assaulting them between 2006 and 2013 while he was a BBC presenter and appeared in Hollywood films.

The joint investigation involving The Sunday Times, The Times, and Channel 4 Dispatches also uncovered accusations of Brand's controlling, abusive, and predatory behavior.
