During his scene with the comedian, Toadie says: "You're Russell Brand! What are you doing here?"

In response, Russell says: "Touring the world, spreading the message - life, love, limitless. I'm a writer and I enjoy festivities ... synchronicity."

And then, a star-struck Toadie replies: "That's awesome."

Why is Russell on Ramsay Street?

Jason Herbison, the executive producer of Neighbours, revealed earlier this year that the show's bosses had invited Russell to the set after discovering he was a huge fan of the soap.

Speaking back in March, he explained: "As it turned out, we were filming an upcoming storyline that gave an organic reason for him to pass through Ramsay Street and we're not just about his comedic talent - his literary genius plays a huge part."
