Innocent until proven guilty and all that, but he is still a nasty piece of work.

And doesn't he look old.

Even if he does step down the show isn't listenable even with a decent stand in presenter now. The format has moved on so much. Sad

In that article it says....

"Evans has admitted in the past that he would expose himself to staff, calling it the funniest thing in the world.

Really?? Rolling Eyes

It seems he is even more of an idiot than I realised.

The latest Private Eye refers to numerous episodes of Evans' disgusting behaviour, mainly flashing his genitals at female colleagues when working on Virgin Radio, Radio 1 and TGIF throughout the 80s and 90s.

The sooner this foul creature is brought to justice and hopefully exterminated the better.

So why hasn't he been suspended by the BBC

Seems like there's one rule for most like Gambo and others but a different one for shouty breakfast presenters

Even Clarkson got suspended and subsequently sacked for something far less serious in my view Rolling Eyes

But if he has admitted in the past that he used to flash at female colleagues and think it was funny, that's proof of that part of his guilt anyway and he should have been sacked at that time. It must have been well known.

No "star" is too big to be sacked. Unfortunately that was a different era and I suppose he was deemed to be too valuable to the BBC.

A good point Helen - as far as I know TB was sacked for simply having a bad memory of events without it ever being suggested that he was guilty of any kind of offence

What is the world coming to Mad
