The Rock of Ages star lost his temper, saying: "My mum is here. She got upset when you dragged up my marriage.

"I saw her cry, Graham. That's the reality because it's real people, Graham, that's my real mum.

"I have come here to promote a film and you made my mum cry. I don't see you as that sort of person, Graham."

Wow, way to layer on the guilt there Russ!

A stuttering Graham defended himself saying: "I don't see myself as that kind of person."

Although this failed to soothe the star who replied saying: "And yet you are."

Despite Graham's attempts to soothe the situation explaining how Katy had been on the show the previous week and it would have been weird not to ask about it, it did nothing to calm Russell down.

His rant continued as he said: "What I would have done, mate, in your position is come up to me before the show and gone 'Eh, listen it's a bit odd your ex-missus was on last week. I might mention it, is that OK?'

"But in all of the chatting and the research backstage, no one mentioned it."

Speaking of his split from Katy, Russell said: "If people get divorced, maybe that is a sad thing. I don't know what is your show about?"

Wow, note to self, don't ask Russell anything about his ex, like ever!
