Comedian Russell Brand gets a good scrubbing from actress Helen Mirren

Helen Mirren and Russell Brand have been getting very cosy on the set of their new movie.

The actress, 65, gave the comedian a scrub down while he sat in a bathtub wearing just his underwear.

Russell, 35, posted a picture of their soapy shenanigans – part of a scene in a remake of 1981 film Arthur – on Twitter.

‘At last. A bath from Helen Mirren,’ he Tweets. ‘Never has getting clean been more dirty.’

Russell got engaged to Katy Perry, 25, in India on New Year’s Eve.
