Russell Brand joked that he would have a threesome with Fifi Box and her mother during an interview for a morning television show — which has now resurfaced in the wake of shock rape and assault allegations being levelled against the comedian.
The Sunrise segment was littered with sexual innuendos and ultimately posted on YouTube but not broadcast due to its ‘rude and crude language’.
During the 2010 interview, Brand also straddled Box before planting kisses on her cheek — all while he was engaged to singer Katy Perry.
Russell, now 48 and married to Laura Gallacher, was this week embroiled in a high-profile sex scandal after a Dispatches exposé uncovered allegations of misconduct, rape and sexual assault – all of which he denies.
The interview, which was meant to promote Russell’s movie Get Him to the Greek, began with the actor being shocked to learn his interviewer’s unique name.
‘Fifi Box! Then what is your porn name?’ he asked the blonde star, who laughed in reply.
Fifi, who is now a radio presenter, barely got her questions out as Russell repeatedly interrupted her with more several sexual innuendos.
‘There’s no doubt about it, Fifi, you are a woman,’ he said. ‘Everything about you — your appearance, your name, suggests femininity.
‘A more feminine name than Fifi box I struggle to think of. Other than being called Jezebel Vagina.’

Fifi awkwardly smiled, before thanking the actor and attempting to move on with the interview.
‘Thank you for that, Russell. I appreciate that. I want to talk about the movie again because you’ve got anything about genitalia and that’s not a good thing,’ she said.
Russell interrupted, ‘I’m gonna stop you. In my case, it is a good thing,’ before he pointed down at his genitals and referred to them as ‘the ratbags’.
‘God bless them. Little passageway to pleasure I’m sure,’ he continued.
The now 46-year-old reporter stated she was at a ‘lost for words’ as the chat continued with more bizarre topics, mostly unrelated to the film.

When Fifi admitted that the long-haired star had ‘thrown’ her off track, Russell replied: ‘If you’re ever so confused, Fifi Box, pop yourself down on my knee and see if we can’t get you pregnant.’
A shocked Fifi laughed and added that she was grateful her mother wasn’t around to watch the interview as she was ‘busy’.
‘Bring her in! I’ll take the lot of youse!’ Russell replied, hinting the trio should have a threesome.
Fifi seemed flustered by his comments and attempted to continue the conversation about the movie.
Towards the end of the interview, Fifi laughed at his pronunciation of her name.

‘When you laugh like that, it makes me know what you’d sound like when you [orgasm]. And I like it,’ he said, aware of the fact the interview was for morning television.
‘Hey, viewers! That’s what Fifi sounds like when she [orgasms]. Enjoy your breakfast you perverts.’
Fifi appeared visibly uncomfortable during the interview.
‘Once again, you’ve done it again! Everything I want to know, I want to know-‘ she cried, before Russell asked, ‘Do you want me to come over there to you?’
‘No, it’s okay,’ Fifi laughed nervously as Russell made advances against her wishes.

He then proceeded to sit on her lap, with his legs wrapping around her waist as a flustered Fifi continued to awkwardly giggle and fan her face.
The pair hugged in that position before Russell planted a kiss on her right cheek.
‘Oh my God! He’s kissing me!’ Fifi cried.
‘Everything’s okay, isn’t it?’ he asked her, to which she stuttered, ‘Yes.’
Fifi appeared to struggle in her chair, continuing to fan her face as Russell gripped her arms.
‘You’re quite handsome… You’re very good looking, and you’re engaged and I’m aware of that. And she’s a beautiful woman,’ she rambled, referencing his then-fiancée Katy Perry.
‘She’s lovely, isn’t she? This is alright though, I’m allowed to sit on other people’s laps,’ Russell added, before pulling Fifi in for a hug and stroking her hair.

‘It’s all ok. It’s gonna be all alright… Fifi Box is pregnant now!’
Five years after the interview, Fifi labelled Russell’s behaviour ‘inappropriate’.
‘I didn’t know much about him at the time,’ she told news.com.au in 2015.
‘By the end of the interview he was straddling me, grinding me inappropriately and trying to kiss me.’
Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Fifi Box’s representatives for comment.
The clip is just one of many that have been resurfaced days after Russell was accused of rape and sexual assault by four different women.
The allegations were laid bare in a joint investigation between The Sunday Times and Channel 4’s Dispatches, which revealed a litany of accusations against the comedian-turned-wellness influencer.
The Metropolitan Police said it will speak to the media outlets in the wake of the accusations to probe Russell’s alleged treatment of women, but added that at this time the force has ‘not received any reports in relation’ to the claims of sexual assault detailed in the article or documentary.

Russell strenuously denied the allegations in a YouTube video posted the day before the Dispatches special aired, in which he described the claims as ‘serious’ and ‘disturbing’.
The comedian, actor and internet personality told his 6.5 million subscribers late on Friday night that there had been ‘very, very serious criminal allegations’ made against him which he ‘absolutely refutes’.
Russell said he had received two ‘extremely disturbing letters’ from a ‘mainstream media TV company’ and a newspaper.
The father-of-two said the letters listed ‘a litany of extremely egregious and aggressive attacks, which are untrue’.
Posting the video on X, where he has 11 million followers, he said: ‘These allegations pertain to the time when I was working in the mainstream, when I was in the newspapers all the time, when I was in the movies. And as I’ve written about extensively in my books, I was very, very promiscuous.

‘During that time of promiscuity the relationships I had were absolutely always consensual. I was always transparent about that then and I am being transparent about it now as well.
‘And to see that transparency metastasized into something criminal that I absolutely deny makes me question is there another agenda at play,’ he added.
On Saturday evening, Russell performed at a sold-out stand-up show at the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre in northwest London as part of his Bipolarisation tour.
Russell had been set to perform in Windsor, Plymouth and Wolverhampton, however his promoters have now confirmed these shows will not go ahead.
A statement from the show’s promoters said: ‘We are postponing these few remaining addiction charity fundraiser shows, we don’t like doing it – but we know you’ll understand.
‘Theatre Royal Windsor will be offering ticket refunds in line with our Terms & Conditions of sale.’
