DJ Fox’s behaviour at station was ‘sleazy’

The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, told the indecency trial that Fox acted “strangely” towards certain women he worked with.

Giving evidence at Westminster Magistrates’ Court, witnesses described alleged incidents of former Capital FM chart show host Fox touching other women and making “laddish banter” at their expense.

One former colleague said she had been told about Fox, 54, refusing to comply with instructions unless the alleged victim made her breasts “speak to him”.

She said: “It just seemed so strange.”

On another occasion, Fox allegedly told a woman he had a dream about her and that he had “woken up with a hard-on”, the court also heard.

She said: “One time, he had bent her over the radio desk and simulated sex from behind with her.

“I heard him say things on occasions that I didn’t think were that appropriate. It was just telling girls that they looked good but in quite a pervy way.

“He said once to a lady I worked with that he didn’t know very well: ‘Ooh, look at you, got your legs out today, looking good.’ ”
