BBC scandal: Young person denies charges against top presenter as 'rubbish'

Stepfather of the youth expressed disappointment in statement made through lawyer, saying it was not true

The young person involved in the recent BBC scandal has come forward to refute allegations of inappropriate behaviour against the top-rated TV presenter. 

The individual, through their lawyer, expressed that nothing unlawful or inappropriate occurred between them and the unnamed presenter. The claims arose after The Sun newspaper reported that the presenter had allegedly paid the young person £35,000 for explicit images.

The lawyer representing the young person said, "For the avoidance of doubt, nothing inappropriate or unlawful has taken place between our client and the BBC personality, and the allegations reported in The Sun newspaper are 'rubbish'." 

The young person had informed The Sun prior to publication that the allegations were untrue.

The BBC is conducting its own internal investigations into the matter, while the Metropolitan Police are also involved to determine if any criminal offences were committed. A spokesperson for The Sun underscored the need for the BBC to thoroughly investigate the allegations, saying, "It's now for the BBC to properly investigate."

Despite the young person's denial, their parents continue to stand by their claims. The parents expressed their concern and hope that their child receives the necessary support. They also questioned how their child could afford legal representation. The stepfather of the young person expressed disappointment in the statement made through the lawyer, asserting, "It's not true."

BBC director-general Tim Davie addressed the situation, acknowledging that the allegations were being taken seriously. He condemned the unfounded rumours circulating online regarding other BBC presenters and assured that the matter was being handled with care. Davie highlighted the importance of privacy and said, "By law, individuals are entitled to a reasonable expectation of privacy, which is making this situation more complex."

The police confirmed that no investigation is currently underway, but they are examining a report of malicious communications on social media related to the scandal. Various BBC presenters, including Rylan Clark, Gary Lineker, Jeremy Vine, and Nicky Campbell, were wrongly implicated on Twitter and had to distance themselves from the controversy.

The ongoing investigations will seek to establish the facts and ensure a fair resolution. The allegations have sparked discussions surrounding prompt action and the necessity for a thorough investigation to reach a conclusive outcome.
