Reports of Barbara’s accident come as Russell confirmed he would be postponing his Re:Birth tour date in Aberdeen tonight (April 26) due to a personal emergency.

Russell Brand is currently touring his show Re:Birth which is scheduled to end next month following dates in Dartford, Manchester, Sunderland, Portsmouth, Derby, Blackpool, Dublin, Belfast and Middlesborough.

Anyone who missed out on tickets will be able to watch the show via a Netflix special.

Meanwhile, speaking out after the birth of his first child, the comedian opened up about how Mabel’s birth changed him for the better.

“When she was born, I felt something really quite profound,” he shared. “I felt extremely present in that birth, completely overwhelmed by it.

“I’ve heard a lot of men say, ‘I didn’t know I had so much love in me’, but I did know I had so much love in me; I just didn’t know what to do with it.”
