Tony Blackburn admits romps with “over 500 women” but denies sex abuse claims

Latest News No Comments on Tony Blackburn admits romps with “over 500 women” but denies sex abuse claims

Tony Blackburn has admitted he romped with hundreds of women but insisted he is no sex abuser.

The former BBC DJ, fired over “inconstancies” in his evidence to the Savile inquiry , said: “I’m not proud of the fact, but I probably slept with 500 women.

“But they were consenting adults and no one was hurt or touched inappropriately. I was single, it was fun. I never did anything improper.”

Blackburn has insisted he was never quizzed over claims teenage dancer Claire McAlpine was “seduced” by him in 1971 – despite secret memos revealing BBC bosses had spoken to him twice at the time.

He said the confusion may have arisen as his then-agent could have spoken to executives on his behalf, without his knowledge.

He added: “I think they wanted me to say I couldn’t remember meeting them as it was so long ago.

“But that would be a lie. I remember everything.”

He added later: “I can only say that I told the truth. The whole thing baffles me.”

Referring to the secret papers, Blackburn, right, said: “I never saw them until 2012. I wish I had.

“I wish it had been investigated properly, then we wouldn’t be in the mess we’re in now.”
