You might think that a controversial, womanising British comedian and a chart-topping, girl-kissing American pin-up would not be the likeliest of pairings, but Russell Brand and Katy Perry have undoubtedly become the most exciting -and endearing - couple on the celebrity circuit today. Neither struggle with making headlines on both sides of the Atlantic. Despite being relatively unknown in the US at the time, Brand was chosen to host the 2008 annual MTV Awards and proved so popular that they invited him back in 2009. Back in the UK, he courted controversy on BBC Radio 2 alongside Jonathon Ross after making crude comments about the granddaughter of 78-year-old actor Andrew Sachs. The 'Sachsgate' scandal may have cost Brand his job at the BBC, but the boost to his profile sent his notoriety soaring, leading him to become one of the most popular comedians working today. But it wasn't until meeting the chart-topping Katy Perry that he finally seemed ready to settle down. The beautiful 'I Kissed a Girl' singer charmed the self-confessed serial philanderer and on 6 January 2010, they announced their engagement after Russell staged an elaborate proposal during their romantic holiday in India. The first book to bring the stories of these two fascinating celebrities together, Russell Brand & Katy Perry - The Love Story reveals all the details of their remarkable whirlwind relationship.
