BBC presenter at centre of explicit photos scandal sent threatening messages to another young person

The BBC presenter at the centre of the explicit photos probe is facing fresh allegations that he sent threatening messages to another young person.

The unnamed presenter sent the messages to a 20-something individual whom he met via a dating app, according to BBC News.

When their contact moved to other platforms, the presenter revealed their identity to the young person and asked them not to tell anyone.

The young person went on to allude to their contact online, and the presenter sent them a number of “threatening messages” in response, which the BBC has seen and verified as coming from a number owned by him.

Over the weekend, The Sun reported the presenter paid a teenager £35,000 for explicit selfies, with the money used to fuel a life-destroying cocaine habit.

The paper quoted the victim’s mother as saying that their child changed from a “happy-go-lucky teenager” to a “ghost-like crack addict” in the space of three years.

On Sunday (9th July) the BBC said it had suspended a male employee over the allegations, which the met police are combing over.

Through a lawyer’s letter, the teenager has denied that anything inappropriate took place. He or she notes that they are estranged from their mother and stepfather, but the family and The Sun stand by the original allegations.
