A BBC employee was allegedly tailed by a private investigator after she told her bosses she was attacked while recording a cooking show.
A BBC employee allegedly raped during filming of a cookery contest was tailed by private detectives after telling bosses.
The woman claims she was attacked in London in September last year.
The Sun reported, she had been working on BBC Three show Hungry For Itwhich is hosted by Stacey Dooley, 34.
BBC Studio chiefs moved the woman to a hotel after her complaint and it was while staying there that she was put under surveillance, a report passed to The Sun on Sunday reveals.
It details her comings and goings at the hotel and police station and names the investigating officers.
The PI describes watching her flat and bedroom.
The woman said her movements corresponded to the report and told a friend: “I’d been sexually assaulted at work — one of the worst things imaginable.
“To then find out someone had put private detectives to tail me as I reported what happened to police is horrifying.
“The detail in the report is disgusting. To realise that someone was watching my bedroom at home is terrifying.
“It feels like something out of a TV drama and not real life.”
A last night denied BBC Studios had any involvement in the surveillance report.
He said: “Neither BBC Studios nor the BBC have instigated, sanctioned or contracted by a third party to carry out any surveillance and we have no knowledge of any such report.
“What we have been doing is fully supporting our colleague from the moment we learned about the alleged assault.”
