Probably the most exciting political news this week was Russell Brand's interview with Ed Miliband.

Following a snap of the Labour leader visiting the comedian and self-styled revolutionary, the media speculated about whether the strident non-voter would come out in support of Labour. In the end, he didn't.

BUT, via Twitter, the great bearded tease has released another trailer previewing an extra part to his interview that hasn't been released. "We held back the best bit of Milibrand," he tweeted.

It strongly suggests that Brand will give his verdict (an "election conclusion"), and hints at a Labour endorsement (although, just to throw some quinoa among the pigeons, it also features a screengrab of a piece suggesting he will back the Greens).

Watch it here:

Tune in to the Trews on Monday to find out. 

That sentence hurt this mole's soul, by the way.

I'm a mole, innit.
