Police investigate suspected voyeur over fake nude gameshow

Police are appealing for information as part of an investigation into a fake nude gameshow.

A 28-year-old man reported that he had been approached by a man claiming to be in the entertainment industry.

The suspect asked the man to take part in a game show for the chance to win £5,000, the Metropolitan police said.

The man was asked to go to a hotel in Newham, east London, to take part in several filmed nude “challenges” as part of the show. The suspect then kept the footage, believed to be for his own gratification, police said.

A 31-year-old man also reported to police in February 2020 that the suspect had coerced him into going to a hotel in south-east London to take part in similar activities in August 2013.

The Metropolitan police said a 29-year-old man had been arrested on 30 January last year on suspicion of voyeurism and released under investigation.

Sgt James Mason, of the Met’s north-east basic command unit, said: “We believe there may be more victims in relation to these events.

“I urge anyone who may be a victim of similar crimes or incidents from 2013 to the present day, to come forward with information. The reported incidents took place several years ago and it is important we are able to investigate these and support any further victims.”

Anyone with information or who believes they may have been a victim is asked to call 101.
