Brand and Ross on Sachs prank


BBC presenters Russell Brand and Jonathan Ross have spoken about the series of prank calls made to the actor Andrew Sachs during Brand's BBC Radio 2 show on 18 October.

The pair had left lewd messages about the actor's granddaughter on his voicemail.

Speaking on a videocast after the show, they said that any offence caused to the Fawlty Towers actor was "not intentional" and that sometimes "you don't realise that what you're doing has a reality outside".

The BBC has apologised to actor for the "unacceptable and offensive" content of the calls.
