When we first heard that Russell Brand would be spending time living and working in Ireland, we made it our mission here on 98FM's Big Breakfast to locate him.
As the weeks passed, we received numerous reports from listeners saying they had spotted him out and about in Wicklow. He seemed to be spending a bit of time with his new pals from The Happy Pear!
We even made a trip out to Greystones in the hope of finding him meditating somewhere... alas it was a fruitless endeavor and Russell was nowhere to be found. He was the talk of the town, but no one could point us in the right direction...
Take a listen below:
So it was time to call in reinforcements. We needed eyes and ears on the street. We needed the listeners to do our job essentially and find Russell Brand. We even promised a reward of €98 for the first person to find him and ask him to record a message for Cooper and Luke.
Well, it's finally happened... the moment we've all been waiting for.
Karen Byrne has found Russell Brand, wandering around the hills of Wicklow... (of course)
