BBC Sex Scandal: Find out Who Did it Here!

The tragic girl in the middle of the fallout from Tony Blackburn's sacking by the BBC was allegedly raped by a world-famous singer after the star and girl appeared on Top of the Pops. The claim has been made by a friend of Claire McAlpine – who Blackburn is also accused of abusing.

Kelly Gold, now 60, claims that in 1969 her friend was picked out of the crowd during a recording of the Top of the Pops by roadies, and was whisked off to a hotel by the singer who raped her. McAlpine later committed suicide, fearing she was pregnant from the assault. Gold says she is willing to name the star singer, who is still alive and in his 70s.

"We got told this famous singer was going to be one of the artists that night. Claire was pulled off the stage and disappeared," Gold told the Sunday Mirror. "She got whisked way. I knew she was going into Savile's room because that's where all the stars congregated. She came back later and was very excited. She told me she was going for a drink with this star. She didn't blurt it out. I was a bit jealous."

Gold – who claims she was also sexually assaulted by Jimmy Savile – said she will name the celebrity if it will help a police investigation.

"Claire's voice needs to be heard and her death fully investigated," the 60-year-old said. "Several people involved in abusing her are still alive. She has been labelled a fantasist in a bid to cover up what happened. She would still be alive today if they had listened to her."

Tony Blackburn Sacking

The revelations come after the BBC sacked Blackburn, who had worked at broadcaster since 1967. The corporation said the 73-year-old was fired for failing to fully cooperated with its inquiry in Jimmy Saville's sex abuse.

A report published last week by Dame Janet Smith stated Blackburn was questioned by the BBC in 1971 after Vera McAlpine – Claire McAlpine's mother – complained that Blackburn had groomed Claire. The former Radio 2 presenter denied the claim, stating that he had not groomed or abused McAlpine and that the original complaint had been dropped.

Blackburn has denied any wrongdoing and that he cooperated with the investigation. He also claims he was offered a possible route back by the BBC on the condition that he resigned.

"They are destroying my career and reputation because my version of events does not tally with theirs," Blackburn said.
