Huw Edwards Accused of Being BBC Presenter Who Allegedly Sexted 17-Year-Old – But Here are The Facts



Huw Edwards has been widely accused of being the BBC presenter who allegedly purchased explicit photographs and other sexual content starting when the unidentified seller of said material was just 17-years-old. But the reality is that this hasn’t been confirmed, with the claim being largely promoted by an unreliable blog site. However, there have indeed been some ‘intriguing’ revelations over the past few days – so let’s now ignore the rumours and take a look at the facts. 

There has been widespread speculation on social media over the identity of the accused individual, who remains innocent unless proven guilty, and further allegations made, with the BBC publicly also acknowledging they had verified that the presenter had sent ‘menacing’ and ‘abusive’ messages to another individual.

Mr Edwards, a long-serving presenter who hosts the news at ten and even announced the death of the Queen, is a household name and slowly began to be drawn into the scandal after a photograph emerged allegedly showing him revealing his naked rear. This image, however, has not been verified as being authentic.

Edwards was then noticeably absent from his slot on the BBC on Tuesday night.



On Sunday, the BBC confirmed it had been in touch with police following claims one of its presenters paid a teenager £35,000 for sexually explicit photos.

Claims the presenter began paying the young person when they were 17 were first reported by the Sun on Friday, 7th July, with the young person’s mother telling the newspaper that she saw a picture of the presenter on her child’s phone in which he was “sitting on a sofa in his house in his underwear” and she said she was told it was “a picture from some kind of video call”.

The mother claimed that the so-far unidentified individual had used money given by the presenter to satisfy their crack cocaine addiction, and claimed to have contacted the BBC pleading with them to force the presenter to stop funding their habit.

On Sunday, the BBC confirmed that the presenter had been suspended.

Police said the BBC was in contact but no formal allegation had yet been made by anyone connected to the individual who claims they are the recipient of the presenter’s cash.


In a statement, the BBC said it was working as fast as possible “to establish the facts in order to properly inform appropriate next steps”.

“The BBC first became aware of a complaint in May,” it said. “New allegations were put to us on Thursday of a different nature and in addition to our own enquiries we have also been in touch with external authorities, in line with our protocols.”

The statement added that the corporation expected to be in a position to provide a further update on the process in the coming days.

In an email to staff, BBC director general Tim Davie said such allegations were taken “incredibly seriously”.

He described the situation as “complex” and the corporation was working rapidly on ascertaining the facts and “to ensure that these matters are handled fairly and with care”.


Mr Davie also condemned “unsubstantiated rumours” being made online about some presenters working at the BBC.

At the beginning of the week, Huw Edwards deleted his Instagram account, while ignoring the photograph circulating on Twitter. The presenter also removed a reference to the BBC as being his employer from his Twitter biography.

In a shock twist, the BBC was then contacted by the lawyer of the unidentified individual who allegedly sold images and other content to the presenter – with it being confirmed that they deny any illegal activity had taken place, and it being revealed that The Sun intentionally chose to omit this from their articles, despite a letter by the individual being sent to them long before their stories were published.


The following tweet was also ‘liked’ by Mr Edwards on June 10th – one of only two tweets he engaged with since the scandal was made public:


Though thousands have giddily treated the developing scandal as cheap entertainment, and while there are indeed some ‘interesting’ facts mentioned above, despite blog sites or social media users trying to tell you otherwise, the identity of the BBC presenter has NOT yet been revealed, and no evidence has yet been made public. However, the name of the presenter is expected to be released in due course.


VoteWatch will provide an update when one becomes available.
