Russell Brand wants a knighthood
Russell Brand thinks he deserves a knighthood.
The former drug and sex addict revealed that he thinks he is in line for the honour and that his fans will be upset it he is not presented with one soon.
He told The Sun: 'They can't ignore me for much longer. I should have a knighthood. Otherwise the people will revolt.'
The comedian has been open about his love of Queen Elizabeth and the Royal Family.
After moving to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career, the 'Arthur' star was particularly upset to be missing out on the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations in London earlier this month.
He said: 'It hurts my heart. It's a great time in our country and I'm devastated not to be there. I love the Queen and have never been so in love with her since I came to America.
Russell - who filed for divorce from singer Katy Perry in December added before the event that he would be celebrating regardless of his whereabouts.
He added: 'But we will be honouring the Queen in our own special way.'
