Superfan Leonie Rickards has quite literally been branded – with a tattoo of Russell Brand’s signature on her bottom.
The 18-year-old brunette got the randy star to sign her breast and backside after meeting him at a comedy gig.
She then turned the scrawl into a permanent reminder of their meeting by getting a tattoo artist to trace over the signature.
Bubbly Leonie, who works as a waitress in Cheddar, Somerset, said: “I was able to meet him due to me luring him in by saying if he signed me I would get it tattooed.
“He happily took up the challenge and began to sign my boob. I then said that I wanted my bum signed, so he signed both and gave me a kiss. The next day I got his name tattooed.”
Leonie, who studies Travel and Tourism at Weston University, cornered Brand in a theatre foyer after his recent gig in the seaside town of Weston-super-Mare.
She said: “Russell Brand is my favourite celebrity, other than Michael Jackson. But since Michael Jackson is dead, Russell is now my favourite. I love him.”
Brand arrived in the seaside Somerset town under a storm of controversy after he branded it a ‘junky town’ on Twitter.
