Emily Hartridge, the video presenter Russell Brand has set his sights on, has told Huffington Post Celebrity that she doesn't even fancy him.

The funnyman took a shine to the wannabe TV host after she interviewed him about his new film Rock Of Ages.

During the chat at London's Dorchester hotel, Russ jokingly threw cake at the 28-year-old and, when she protested, he licked it off her arm and then asked for her number but Emily turned him down.

Ouch.

"He did ask for my number but I didn't give it to him," Emily told us. "I just don't want to go out with Russell Brand. I don't fancy him so why would I give him my number?"

Emily - who hosts her own YouTube series 10 Reasons Why - was a little kinder about Russell's ex, Katy Perry, who she has been compared to.

"Katy's absolutely gorgeous so to be compared to her is really nice," she said. "Although I don't think I look like her."
