Broadcaster Jeremy Vine has urged the unnamed BBC presenter to “come forward” following the ongoing investigation into the sexually explicit pictures scandal.

The ongoing sex pics saga has dominated the headlines and social media since reports first emerged on Friday (July 7).

The 58-year-old shared his fears that other innocent colleagues will be caught up with “vitriol” if the masked identity continues.

On Tuesday (July 11) he tweeted: “I’m starting to think the BBC presenter involved in the scandal should now come forward publicly.

“These new allegations will result in yet more vitriol being thrown at perfectly innocent colleagues of his.

“And the BBC, which I’m sure he loves, is on its knees with this. But it is his decision and his alone,” he added.

It comes after The Sun revealed shocking claims that the TV star paid £35,000 to a teenager in exchange for the explicit images.

And on Tuesday (July 11), the BBC reported another youngster had told them they had received “menacing” and “abusive” messages after meeting the high-profile presenter on a dating app.

The unnamed BBC star has since been suspended over sex pic claims and has been accused of breaking lockdown laws in order to meet a young stranger from the dating site in person.

The BBC presenter in question is alleged to have ‘ignored strict Covid rules’ throughout the third lockdown in order to meet the 23-year-old youngster.

A source told The Sun: "The BBC were briefing the nation on the rules – when their star who was part of the institution was quite happy to break them.”

It is understood the household name allegedly sent the person on a dating app cash and asked for a photograph, according to the outlet.
