A book alleges the show’s longest-serving producer, John Nathan-Turner, and his partner, production manager Gary Downie, preyed on young male fans in the 1980s.

Former Blue Peter editor Richard Marson makes the claims in his biography of Mr Nathan-Turner, who died in 2002.

He told online sci-fi magazine Starburst: ‘It happened after the first time I was invited to up to go and see a recording of the show, and he [Nathan-Turner] got a bit frisky, shall we say.

‘I was a bit taken aback; I was only 17 and . . . he said to me, “You’re so f****** provincial”. And of course I was f******* provincial, I came from Bishop’s Stortford, I didn’t know about anything.’

‘I just thought I was in this kind of wonderland that was Television Centre, thinking it was an amazing place, and so I wasn’t really prepared for anything really sophisticated.’
