A sports presenter laughed off suggestions she had seen PR guru Max Clifford walk around naked in the office when she worked for him.

Sky Sports presenter Clare Tomlinson was giving evidence at Southwark Crown Court where Mr Clifford, 70, from Hersham, is standing trial this week.

He denies 11 counts of indecent assault against seven girls and a woman aged 14 to 20 years old between 1966 and 1984.

Ms Tomlinson told jurors: “In my career subsequently I have experienced sexual bullying and harassment, and I wouldn’t be here giving evidence if I believed that Max was capable of that sort of thing.”

The television personality had worked for Mr Clifford as a personal assistance for six months in 1991 and said he had “an old school charm”.

Asked whether the office had been “sexually charged”, she said: "He wasn’t the sort who would pat people on the bum.”

Birds of a Feather actress Pauline Quirke also gave evidence this week and described her friend as a “good, decent man”.

The trial continues.
