Russell Brand has been accused of exposing himself to a woman and then joking about it on his BBC Radio 2 show 30 minutes later.
The allegations, reported by the BBC, are the latest to place pressure on the comedian, who is being investigated by the police following allegations of rape, sexual assault and emotional abuse against him.
The 48-year-old comedian and actor has denied the claims, saying all of his relationships have been "consensual".
Brand is facing sexual assault allegations after four women accused him of controlling, abusive and predatory behaviour between 2006 and 2013, following a joint investigation by The Sunday Times, The Times and Channel 4 Dispatches.
Yahoo News UK examines the timeline of the allegations made against Russell Brand:

Russell Brand posts a video on social media before details of the allegations are published, in which he speaks to camera and denies the claims.
"Amidst this litany of astonishing, rather baroque attacks are some very serious allegations that I absolutely refute," he says.
"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.
"Now during that time of promiscuity, the relationships I had were absolutely, always consensual."

One alleges that Brand raped her against a wall in his home in Los Angeles; a second says he assaulted her in the UK when she was 16 and still at school; a third says Brand sexually assaulted her while she worked with him in Los Angeles, and a fourth woman alleges Brand sexually assaulted her.

In the 90-minute Dispatches special, titled Russell Brand: In Plain Sight, he is accused of pursuing audience members for sex while presenting Big Brother spin-off shows EFourum and Big Brother’s Big Mouth on Channel 4, while other allegations related to when he was a radio presenter for the BBC.
As Dispatches airs, Brand performs a comedy gig to thousands of people at the Troubadour Wembley Park theatre in north-west London as part of his Bipolarisation tour.
Sunday, 17 September
The BBC, Channel 4 and a production company that worked with Brand announce they are investigating the allegations alleged to have happened while the comedian worked with them.
The Met Police also say they will speak to The Sunday Times and Channel 4 to ensure “any victims of crime who they have spoken with are aware of how they may report any criminal allegations to police”.
The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) says they do not have an open investigation into Brand.

Brand’s publisher, Bluebird, also announces it is "pausing" all of his future book projects after the allegations against him.
An upcoming title by Brand, Recovery: The Workbook, was due to be published by Bluebird in December 2025.
The Metropolitan Police reveals that it has received a report of sexual assault alleged to have happened in 2003.
The promoters of Brand's stand-up show postpone the remainder of his tour in the wake of the allegations.

YouTube stops Brand from making money on its platform because of the rape and sexual assault allegations against him.
The Google-owned company says it has suspended the monetisation of Brand's channel - which has 6.6 million subscribers - because he was "violating" its "creator responsibility policy".

The BBC director-general Tim Davie also announces a review of Russell Brand's time at the corporation between 2006 and 2008.

Channel 4 chief executive Alex Mahon says the Brand allegations show that “terrible behaviour” towards women has been "historically tolerated" in the industry.
She added that her channel had invited anyone that knew about such behaviour to come to them directly.
Speaking at the same event, the BBC's Davie says he feels there is an "important, healthy dialogue" to have around imbalances of power.
Paramount+ followed the BBC and Channel 4 in taking down Brand’s content from its channels and catch-up services.
Culture, Media and Sport Committee chairwoman Dame Caroline Dinenage writes to social media site X to ask if owner Elon Musk, who changed its name from Twitter, "has personally intervened in any decisions on Russell Brand’s status on the platform".
Dinenage also wrote to other video hosting sites and social media outlets on Wednesday to ask whether Brand can make "profit from his content" on their platforms.

The BBC reports that Brand exposed himself to a woman in a Los Angeles toilet in 2008 before laughing about it with his Radio 2 co-presenter, Matt Morgan, who said it had been "25 minutes since he [Brand] showed his willy to a lady".
At the time, Brand's radio shows were pre-recorded, meaning a senior figure at the BBC would have listened to the show before approving it for airing.
It emerges police looking into the rape and sexual assault allegations made against Brand are receiving help from a team which was set up in 2014 after Jimmy Savile’s abuse came to light.

Russell Brand thanked his supporters for “questioning” the allegations of rape and sexual assault made against him but did not directly address the claims.
In the three-minute clip, posted on YouTube, Rumble and X, Brand said the week since the claims were published had been “extraordinary and distressing”.
He said: “I thank you very much for your support and for questioning the information that you’ve been presented with.”
Friday 22 September
Brand's latest video was posted just moments before Newsnight aired on BBC Two with fresh accusations about his behaviour.
Cole Parker, who worked with Brand between 2000 and 2002, claimed that models were often warned by their agents about the comedian.
Brand has not responded to the latest claims made in the interview in which Parker told Newsnight he was “surprised” details were not made public sooner and also, there were only four allegations.
He said: “Things like people go back to his house and they fool around and then if they didn’t want to go all the way, he had a reputation for sometimes getting angry or a bit nasty if people wouldn’t sleep with him the first time."
