Brand apology to Andrew Sachs


BBC Radio 2's Russell Brand makes an apology to Andrew Sachs after swearing on the actor's answer phone.

Mr Sachs, who played Manuel in Fawlty Towers, was expected to be a guest on a previous programme, but was unable to appear due to unforeseen circumstances.

Brand made an on-air apology on his Saturday night show ahead of a story published in the Mail on Sunday, but then made comments about the paper's wartime connection to British nazi Oswald Mosley.
