It's no wonder Russell Brand is looking so glum following his split from wife Katy Perry.

The funnyman has returned to London while he sent a removal company to collect his belongings from the pair's luxurious mansion in the Hollywood Hills.

The comedian was seen reverting back to his normal attire of skinny black jeans, leather jacket and floppy grey beanie hat during an outing in the capital on Friday.

He finished off the ensemble with chunky boots and a scarf to keep him warm in the chilly London air.

It's a far cry from what he's become accustomed to in sunny LA, where he set up home with the California Gurls hitmaker.

Brand appeared to have a group of friends to keep him company, but he's so far failed to crack a smile since news of his split emerged.
