Russell Brand and Katy Perry – it's on!

Thursday October 8, 2009

Holding hands at Paris fashion week, Russell Brand and Katy Perry left onlookers in no doubt that they're now a couple.

The picture confirms what has been suspected for a few weeks, and it seems that the comedian is well and truly smitten.

Not only did he follow his new girlfriend to France, but he confessed earlier this week: "I think I'm in love."

The pair's romance started when they ran into each other at the MTV Awards last month.

Russell then invited the I Kissed A Girl star to join him for a break in Thailand.

While Katy didn't confirm who she was on holiday with, she wrote on Twitter: "After a week in magical Thailand and I'm ready to face the world again. Been schooled on Morrissey, Oscar Wilde & Peter Sellers…inspired."

Russell is known to admire the three artists, even naming his cat after The Smiths singer.

A later tweet from Katy read: "Pssst…I've got a secret. HUGE news coming in a couple of days!"

Then last week she was seen emerging from Russell's Hampstead home on Saturday morning after spending the night there.

Even before they hooked up at the MTV awards Katy confessed to being bowled over by the Forgetting Sarah Marshall star.

 "I love him. He's so great," she told an interviewer last year. 

"He's got the worst sense of humour in the best sense of the way."
