An interview between Dannii Minogue and Russell Brand - recorded for his MTV chatshow in 2006 - has resurfaced after he was accused of rape, sexual assault and emotional abuse following a joint investigation by The Times, The Sunday Times and Channel 4’s Dispatches.

Sky News reported that “In 2006, pop star Dannii Minogue called Brand a ‘vile predator’ while describing an appearance with him on his MTV chat show 1 Leicester Square.” The article goes on to say that “The Australian singer who had been promoting her album The Hits & Beyond, told The Mirror “(Brand) is completely crazy and a bit of a vile predator. I certainly don’t think he has cured his sex addiction, that’s for sure. He wouldn’t take no for an answer.”

Dannii Minogue also revealed that “Throughout the whole interview, he kept making shocking remarks that I can’t even repeat. Just uttering the words would make me blush.”
