Russell Brand is set to propose to Katy Perry, femalefirst.co.uk reports. The British comedian — who has been linked to a string of beauties in the past and is known for his womanizing ways — has amazed friends with his new attitude to romance and pals are convinced he is getting ready to ask the singer to marry him, the website says. A source close to Russell said: “We’ve never seen him like this. He always has a woman on his arm, or in his bed, and hasn’t been interested in monogamy. “But this is different — we all think it won’t be long before he marries Katy. I’m waiting for a call to say they are in that Little Chapel in Vegas and have run off to get married.”

Former Oasis rocker Noel Gallagher added: “He’s a changed man, Russell.” The 34-year-old star admitted he has never been happier than since he embarked on his romance with Katy, 25. He said: “To be honest I haven’t stopped smiling. She’s a lovely girl and it’s going really, really well”
