Investigation Results

Get the latest on the internal investigation into allegations against Russell Brand from Channel 4 CEO Alex Mahon. The inquiry is nearing completion, with Mahon addressing Brand's denial of rape and abuse allegations from 2006 to 2013.

Mahon assured transparency in the investigative process, emphasizing that a dedicated team, separate from the program production team, is conducting a thorough inquiry. Immediate reporting to the police is mandated for any allegations of criminal activity. Currently, the investigative team is meticulously reviewing around 60,000 historical documents and interviewing individuals involved during the specified period.

Beyond the specific accusations, Brand faces claims of controlling, abusive, and predatory behavior. Subsequent to the investigation's initiation, additional allegations of sexual offenses in London and other parts of the country have been reported to the police.

In her reflections on the investigation's findings, Mahon drew attention to shocking and troubling content aired a decade ago. She urged consideration of its potential impact on future programs, underscoring Channel 4's commitment to robust codes of conduct for staff, suppliers, and producers. These codes are regularly updated and shared as part of the network's ongoing commitment to accountability.

Mahon also addressed the proactive measures taken by Channel 4 in monitoring cases, mentioning a whistleblowing line accessible to everyone working on Channel 4 productions. She emphasized that every report is thoroughly investigated, with results reported back to the audit committee.

Russell Brand's alleged sexual offenses are concurrently under investigation by the Metropolitan Police and BBC/Banijay UK, as reported by The Times. Additionally, Endemol, commissioned by Channel 4 for Brand's Big Brother spin-offs, is conducting its own investigation into his behavior.

Responding to rumors about her departure from Channel 4, Mahon dismissed such speculation as untrue. She considered it a normal aspect of executive roles in the broadcasting industry, reinforcing her commitment to the ongoing responsibilities of her position.
