British funnyman Russell Brand admits he wants to work with Jonathan Ross again, because he is the country's best broadcaster

Russell Brand wants to work with Jonathan Ross again.

The British funnyman would love to star in a new project with the chat show host - who he caused public furore with when they made lewd phone calls made to veteran actor Andrew Sachs - and hopes they will "spontaneously" collaborate in the future.

He said: "I'd love to do something with Jonathan Ross again. I think he's the best broadcaster in the country so I would do whatever he wants.

"He's the sort of person you can do things spontaneously with, without any fear of consequence. Or at least that's what history's taught me."

Russell and Jonathan caused controversy when they made the calls live on Radio Two.

After numerous complaints, Jonathan was banned from the BBC without pay for 12 weeks for making the calls, while Russell quit voluntarily.

Although he currently has no official plans to reunite with Jonathan, the star - who recently appeared in movie 'Get Him To The Greek' - wouldn't rule out making a return to the network either.

He added to LBC 97.3's James O'Brien: "I love the BBC. Absolutely love it. I'm a bit busy so it would have more to do with scheduling reasons than anything else."
