Eccentric British TV star RUSSELL BRAND received a shock when Hollywood funnyman Will Ferrell groped his behind during the taping of his TV show 1 LEICESTER SQUARE. The wild-haired lothario, notorious for his outrageously flirty behaviour and sexual innuendoes, found himself in an awkward position when the microphone in his back pocket became dislodged. And Ferrell wasted no time in reach into Brand's back pocket and enthusiastically readjusting the errant equipment. Brand said, "Not many people start an interview by just bumming me!" He later admitted, "It's my favourite interview I've ever done."
