Five months on from the election, Russell Brand still counts himself as a Jeremy Corbyn supporter, claiming that his policies have “taken the pressure off everyone else”.

Politics is just one of the many topics Russell will be tackling when he brings his Re:Birth tour to London’s Eventim Apollo this month, and ahead of the gigs he gave HuffPost UK his verdict on how the Labour leader has fared.

“I think he’s doing really amazingly,” he said.

“Jeremy Corbyn has taken a lot of pressure off of everybody else.

“You don’t have to stand on a street corner screaming, ‘We should all care about one another’ or do endless blogs about changing the world, because Jeremy Corbyn is putting policies that are about helping ordinary people - ‘for the many not the few’ to quote their slogan - into the political sphere.”

Turning his attention to other members of the party, Russell added: “I really admire Jeremy Corbyn and Diane Abbott and John McDonnell.
