The comedian was practising his performance of Beatles classic I Am Walrus in east London - the area where he grew up and fell into drug addiction.

Russell told The Sun: "It was a bit of a moment actually, doing the Olympics rehearsals down at the old Ford plant in Dagenham.

“It doesn’t seem like all that long ago I was knocking about down there looking for mischief."

But all is quite not as you might think - Russ, 36, actually asked 37-year-old Becks about painkilling drug cortisone.

Russell continued: “I was speaking to David Beckham, who was there with his lovely wife Victoria, and I was asking him about pain relief for a bad back.

“I’ve got this pain in my lower back and I asked him if he had one of those injections for the pain when he was playing. He said all I needed was a massage, but he wasn’t exactly offering."

Russell - a former heroin addict - admitted it felt rather bizarre to be hanging around the area again.

He continued: “It was mad, that whole situation in Dagenham. Me, back there again looking for drugs, only a stone’s throw from where my old grandma was buried.”
