Identifying UK accent

Dear linguaphiles, I have a question which has been bugging me for a while. I'm curious to know where UK [presentor?] Russell Brand's accent is from, if it's identifiable? I recognize a glottal stop but I can't tie it to any area in specific.

If you want to hear an example, here is a youtube clip, scroll on to around 1:30. Any help would be appreciated!
