Russell Brand has resigned from BBC Radio 2, following prank call remarks made to actor Andrew Sachs onÂ Brand's radio programme.
Earlier, co-host Jonathan Ross - who had made prank calls to Sachs on his answerphone alongsideÂ Brand -Â was suspended from the BBC with Brand,Â and the pair'sÂ scheduled BBC Radio 2 programmes have been cancelled.
Despite Ross' public apology to Sachs and his granddaughter, Georgina Baillie, Brand took the decision to resign after he had taken: "complete responsibility for the incident."
Sachs, who played Manuel in the BBC comedy Fawlty Towers told the BBC News Channel: "I've received written apologies from both and I won't be taking police action."
