It’s estimated he makes £1 million a year from associated adverts.

Brand is also facing a police investigation into allegations of rape and sexual assaults between 2006 and 2013.

He denies all the claims.

A YouTube spokesman said:

“If a creator’s off-platform behaviour harms our users, employees or ecosystem, we take action.”

Brand’s “Bipolarisation” tour has also been postponed.

The sexual allegations against Brand, 48, were made in a joint investigation by the Sunday Times, the Times and Channel 4’s Dispatches.

Before broadcast Brand took to online media to deny all allegations.

He said he was the subject of a co-ordinated attack” involving “very serious allegations that I absolutely refute”.

He added that his relationships had been “always consensual”.
