CHANNEL 5 WARNED BY SCOTLAND YARD FOR HAVING EX-OPERATION YEWTREE DETECTIVE ON BIG BROTHER

Friday June 14 2013

– Police have warned Channel 5 about the risk of having a senior police officer recently involved in investigating the Jimmy Savile sex abuse scandal in the Big Brother house.

An unnamed detective constable who had been working on Operation Yewtree – a special investigation into the former Top of The Pops presenter launched by the Metropolitan Police last year – up until very recently is set to enter the reality show tonight.

Scotland Yard has written to Channel 5 to warn about the broadcaster’s responsibility in connection with live investigations.

Channel 5 responded to say it had put procedures in place to ensure that nothing that might conflict with the investigation would be broadcast.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “We are aware of reports concerning the proposed media appearance of a former detective constable.

“We have been in contact with Channel 5 and made them fully aware of potential risks and their responsibility to live investigations.

“All officers joining the MPS [Metropolitan Police Service] and leaving the MPS are required to sign the Official Secrets Act.”

The new Big Brother housemate reportedly quit his job with the force in order to become a contestant on the latest series of the reality show Big Brother which started with the first batch of entrants last night.

“Leaving the police force to go into the Big Brother house is a massive move,” a TV insider told the Daily Star.

“Their former bosses are going to be shocked about their decision to join the show and naturally will be worried about what might be said inside the house. This person has seen a lot of bad things while working on Operation Yewtree.”

The insider added: “They will know what can and can’t be said inside the house but it’s only natural for their housemates to want to try to get as much gossip as possible.”

The contestant reportedly told Channel 5 bosses that working as one of the 30 officers involved in Operation Yewtree had been “upsetting” and “draining”.

More than 400 lines of inquiry have so far been uncovered by police investigating the Savile scandal, relating both to the former television presenter, people he was connected to and unconnected “others”.

In January Channel 5’s Celebrity Big Brother had a brush with Operation Yewtree as Jim Davidson was arrested just days before he had been due to enter the house.

Of the 13 suspects arrested by Operation Yewtree so far two have been charged: PR consultant Max Clifford and former BBC driver David Smith.

An unnamed 65-year-old man and former BBC producers Ted Beston and Wilfred De’Ath have been released without charge.

The eight others, including Gary Glitter, Dave Lee Travis, Chris Denning, Freddie Starr, Rolf Harris and Jim Davidson, remain on police bail.

This year’s Big Brother has a “secrets and lies” theme and there will even be a prison inside the house.

The ex-Operation Yewtree officer is believed to be entering the Big Brother house on Friday night.

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
