Sign of trouble? Russell Brand stepped out for a shopping trip in London today without his wedding ring on

Russell Brand stepped out without his wedding ring today amid rumours of marriage trouble.

The comedian, 36, was spotted on a solo shopping trip in London after spending Christmas 7,000 miles apart from his wife Katy Perry.

He happily soaked up the love from fans during his outing and even posed up for a photograph with a delighted blonde shopper.

But the Arthur star's sparkling diamond band, which matches the singer's wedding bling, was noticeably absent from his left hand.

Katy was not wearing her ring either while holidaying in Hawaii over the festive season.

The couple decided to spend Christmas apart after huge argument, it has been claimed.

A source is quoted as telling Us Weekly magazine: 'They had a massive fight. She was like, "F*** you. I'm going to do my own thing."

Meanwhile the source said that Russell replied: 'Fine, f*** you too.'
The source added: 'They haven't split up just yet, but things are not good. The fighting is getting worse.'

Katy, 27, was seen lapping up the fine weather in Hawaii on December 25 with a group of friends while comedian Brand was seen in a pub in Cornwall, England.

The couple were said to have planned Christmas together with reports Katy was going to jet her family in a private plane over to the UK to celebrate together.

In November, Brand's mother Barbara had tweeted she was looking forward to spending the festive season with her son and daughter-in-law.

She wrote on Twitter: 'Spoke to Russell and Katy, they are so happy, it's lovely. We will all be together for Christmas.'

A spokesperson for the couple has not yet commented and neither Katy nor Russell have alluded to their relationship on Twitter.

The couple, who married in October last year after a whirlwind romance, have gone out of their way lately to quash speculation that their marriage is on shaky ground.

She has previously used Twitter to dismiss marriage rumours. She tweeted: ‘Just cause we don’t flaunt our relationship doesn’t mean there’s something wrong w/it. Privacy is our luxury. ’
