Russell Brand wants to date an Australian soap star.
The 37-year-old comedian - who has been linked to a string of women since splitting from wife Katy Perry last year - is looking forward to his upcoming trip to Australia because he hopes to visit the set of the show 'Neighbours' to find a new love.
He told The Sun newspaper: "I need to get on to the set of 'Neighbours' to see if there are any young lovelies in the cast I should try and woo."
He recently tried to secure a wild date with Playboy models Carla and Melissa Howe after his stand-up gig in Beverly Hills on Tuesday night (26.09.12)
Red-haired Carla explained: "The lights came on during the show and some American girls started screaming at him.
"He told them they were weird and he wasn't interested, then he picked us out afterwards. One of his team told us to wait outside and Russell pulled up. He wound down his window and told us how nice we looked. He couldn't believe we were twins.
"Russell said he was going home and asked us if we'd come along. But as soon as a photographer turned up he took our numbers and drove off.
"The snapper ruined the meet but, yeah, most girls would have got in the car."
