Downing Street has described Russell Brand’s sexual assault allegations as ‘very serious and concerning.’

Forgetting Sarah Marshall actor Brand, 48, was the subject of Channel 4 and The Times’ collaborative Dispatches episode on Saturday night in which he faced allegations of rape, sexual assault, and controlling and emotionally abusive behaviour.

The comedian has strenuously denied the ‘very very serious allegations’ in a video posted on his social media pages on Friday ahead of the episode, as well as an expose from the newspaper.

It’s now been reported that Downing Street has declined to urge broadcasters and streaming platforms such as YouTube and Netflix to take down Brand’s content.

The Prime Minister’s official spokesman said: “It’s a decision for all broadcasters to consider the right approach in light of these very serious allegations. They are deeply concerning, they need to be investigated.

‘But I’m not going to dictate the actions of broadcasters or streaming services.’
