Comedian Russell Brand has been dropped as an ambassador for a High Wycombe charity, this newspaper can report.

One Can Trust food bank, based on Duke Street, has confirmed to the Bucks Free Press that the 48-year-old YouTuber is no longer associated with them.

It comes after yesterday we revealed all references to the Forgetting Sarah Marshall actor had been scrubbed from the charity's website ahead of a documentary airing.

A One Can Trust spokesman confirmed: "Following the extremely serious allegations concerning Russell Brand, I can confirm he is no longer an ambassador for the One Can Trust food bank."

Mr Brand, who lives near Marlow, has been accused of rape, sexual assaults and emotional abuse during a seven-year period at the height of his fame. The father-of-two has strongly denied the allegations and says his relationships have always been "consensual". 

No criminal charges have been brought against Mr Brand but the Met Police today issued a statement, encouraging anyone who ‘believes they have been the victim’ of sexual assault to come forward. 

The allegations against Mr Brand were televised on Saturday night in a Channel 4 Dispatches documentary, in conjuction with the Sunday Times newspaper.

Four women are alleging sexual assaults between 2006 and 2013.

Other claims made relate to Brand's allegedly controlling, abusive and predatory behaviour.

Within hours of the allegations being published, the actor-turned-activist performed a scheduled comedy gig at the 2,000-capacity Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre in north-west London, as part of his Bipolarisation tour.

During the set, which lasted about an hour, Brand alluded to the accusations but did not address them directly. He told the audience there were things he wanted to talk about but could not.

As previously reported, Mr Brand was an hour late to the gig after getting caught up in traffic on the M40 due to a crash.
