Officers told the 90’s star he was being arrested on suspicion of malicious communication and he was being taken to Leyton Police Station for questioning.    

The ex-boy band member, who rose to fame with songs such as House of Love, Hold My Body Tight and Stay Another Day, questioned officers on whether they were at his address ‘under oath’ and repeatedly asked ‘Why are you doing this to me?’ 

Broadcasting live on YouTube, he said: ‘This is it, this is it everyone… this is it.

‘They’re here again everyone, they’re here again… they’re here again. They’re here again everyone. They’re here. Can you not touch this please? Listen you lot are freaking me out – what are you doing?’

A police officer asked Brian, ‘Come and have a chat?’  

Speaking behind a metal gate, Brain said: ‘I’m having a chat but please don’t –

‘Why do you want to break into my house? I’m being arrested but why’ve you got to come in my house?

‘Listen, get away, get away I will come with you; you have my word but please move back from my house.

‘No you’re not staying that close – you’re not coming in my house again. I will come with you, why are you doing this to me man?

‘Please, I need your protection people. Look what’s happening to me, look how many people are here. What is this? Why are you doing this to me?’

The police explained an allegation of malicious communication had been made against Brian, but he still refused to let them into his property.  

Brian said: ‘Malicious communication? Mate, are you lot going to kill me? You’re going to put me in prison and kill me for the queen. You are.

‘I know people, look at it… look what they’re doing to me. You are making me ill, first things first are you here on your oath today, are you all here on your oath?

‘The oath you have taken to the queen to uphold the common law of the land – are you here on your oath today? I am asking you.’  

Officers weren’t prepared to go into details given Brian was filming, but the former singer named two victims he believes have been instrumental in his arrest.

Eventually, after police said Brian’s behaviour made them fear for his safety, he obliged to come with them – leaving the live-stream continuing to record.

He said: ‘I’m going to come with you right now. You’re not going in my house. I don’t agree with this right but I’ll go with you peacefully.

‘Can you just step back so I can come with you. What are you going to do with me? You’re going to kill me aren’t you? You are.’

The ex-couple, who dated from 1991-1995, have been engaged in a war of words online with both stars firing accusations via YouTube.    

Danniella recently said: ‘You’re not special and you’re not different love.

‘MI5 are not on your case, I don’t know how you think that, you’re like a paranoid coke freak, which I used to be where you think everyone at your f***ing door is MI5 and they’re going to come through your door for something.

‘They ain’t Brian, no one is listening that’s why you’ve got like 30 people listening to your rant, slandering my name when I’m coming on here talking about getting well, 12 step programs, it’s people like you that put me back into relapses but you’re not going to do that.

‘He thinks I’ve got convictions, he’s on there saying I bought MI5 to his house and stuff like that, what am I? Miss Moneypenny?

‘Mate you need to get the hell out of your front door, you’re fully live having a break down on YouTube, crying, sobbing, talking about me, slandering me, saying I’m involved with pedophiles and pedophile rings, I was abused all my life in this industry as a child, you wasn’t Brian.’

‘I went to the police yesterday to make a statement and get a restraining order because he’s bringing up stuff from my past which is very damaging.

‘Every time that happens I get reoccurring nightmares and then I get abuse on social media.’
