Comedian admits swingers' love-in was no 'Turkish Delight'

Russell Brand reveals he fantasied about having an orgy for years, but when he took part in one it was a complete let down.

‘The word “orgy” is undeniably an evocative one,’ says the comedian.

‘It conjures up sumptuous images of delicate muslim drapes being teased by the breeze, Turkish music playing,

‘In fact my whole orgy scenario seems to have been lifted pretty much wholesale from a Turkish Delight advert.’

Russell, 32, who didn’t think twice before excepting his invitation to the love-in in North London, admits he was left disappointed.

‘What I got, in a tower block in Hackney, was people who looked like they were made of Ready Brek, swathed in Clingfilm, waddling back and forth with towels about their waists,’ Russell recalls in his new autobiography My Booky Wook.

‘I remember this woman came bustling out of a doorway, when I first got there – she reminded me of my mum, which didn’t help – and said, “Just done my second…better go and rinse my mouth out”.

‘Then a washing-machine repair man turned up – not as a guest, but to repair the washing machine.’
