Russell Brand has landed in hot water again with broadcasting watchdog Ofcom - this time over a radio interview with an Elvis Presley tribute act.

During his Sunday show on digital station Radio X, Brand asked a vulgar question from Presley impersonator James Burrell about Elvis Presley.

The show went on to include an anecdote about the late singer and a prostitute.

Ofcom ruled the material was "inappropriately scheduled" given that children could have been listening, and that the interview breached the broadcasting code.
