Russell Brand chats about his Messiah Complex world tour - and explains why he's had to cancel gigs in the Middle East on safety grounds. Plus he limbers up for his appearance on the BBC's Question Time, and lifts the lid on what really went on during a much-discussed recent interview on American breakfast TV.

The Queen's horse Estimate triumphs at Royal Ascot in an electrifying climax to the Gold Cup - the first time in the race's long history that it has been won by a reigning monarch.

Plus best-selling author Jeffrey Deaver on his latest thriller The Kill Room, the latest in his Lincoln Rhyme series. And Rich Peppiatt and Louise Mensch join Richard to count down the most talked about news stories of the past seven days in Chart the Week.
