‘WHAT did ex-Blue Peter presenter John Leslie do when he first heard that he was not going to faces charges relating to sex allegations made against him?

‘What do mean you’ve got Anthea Turner to play Ulrika?!’

He pressed ‘record’ on his video camera and taped the whole thing.

And that is why we are able to see a still of the 38-year-old Scotsman breaking down in tears on the front page of this morning’s Sun.

The paper has seen an advance copy of the video, which will be shown on Sky One on Sunday, and describes how Leslie sinks to the floor and sobs when he hears the good news from lawyers.

Ironically, it was a false dawn for Leslie and he was later told that he would have to face court – although all charges were subsequently dropped.

The Sun says the programme, narrated by its own columnist Jane Moore, will contain footage taken over the past 12 months, including exclusive interviews with Leslie, girlfriend Abi Titmuss, friends and family.

Meanwhile, it is comforting to know that, even at their moments of deepest despair, celebrities remain sufficiently self-obsessed to film their every move.

True professionals, one and all.’
