It just goes to show that you can't spot an abusive twat easily. Who'd have guessed?

story, sorry, Torygraph

edam Wed 26-Sep-12 14:40:15

Yes, quite. Scary man.

picnicbasketcase Wed 26-Sep-12 14:41:04

If all of those details are true, yes he does sound extremely creepy and controlling.

Clever girl to tape it-much harder to disprove.

TheLaineyWayIsEssex Wed 26-Sep-12 14:48:28

wow! did not expect that. Very clever of her to tape him, and brave of her to go to the police. Must have been hard knowing that he was in the public eye so attention would be drawn to the case.
What a vile man, hope he doesn't get off scott free.

pictish Wed 26-Sep-12 14:51:54

Oh dear! If this is true, he is very nasty man.

edam Wed 26-Sep-12 14:55:59

yes, tape wa a v. good idea, very powerful evidence it will be hard for the jury to ignore. Although I'm sure there will be some who believe the myths about domestic violence and will focus on 'why didn't she leave' instead of 'why didn't he stop'.

GlibGlobGloo Wed 26-Sep-12 15:12:57

I'm shocked. What a vile, vile man.

DuaneDibbley Wed 26-Sep-12 16:14:19

What a shit! I hope prospective employers take note.

AmberLeaf Wed 26-Sep-12 16:30:27

I came here to search for a thread about this and if none was going to post one with this link Daily mail link

What a cunt eh? allegedly

fraggletits Wed 26-Sep-12 17:13:31

Whoa! it Sounds like full blown Narcissism - with recordings of him being played out in court and the 'Pukka' pad then I doubt it's all made up on her part.

KatoPotato Wed 26-Sep-12 17:16:31

Almost akes you wonder what strong arm tactics he used to reunite the Grange Hill Cast....

Allegedly

What an utter, utter cunt.

Darkesteyeswithflecksofgold Wed 26-Sep-12 17:46:21

What a bastard! Cunt of the highest order!

AmberLeaf Wed 26-Sep-12 18:22:25

Its all bad but that pukka pad filled with her sexual history and him using it in later arguments [read him using it to berate her] is just sooo fucked up.

I quite liked his shows before as well.

PosieParker Wed 26-Sep-12 19:13:28

I believe every word, it sounds very plausible.
The waking her when sleeping if she wasn't facing him shock, the pukka pad shock, pulling her hair and slapping her face shockshock. That he may not get a custodial sentence sad.

carlywurly Wed 26-Sep-12 19:51:32

Shocking. The abusive twats are all too often the least likely candidates though. That's how they get away with it for so long. sad

LadyBeagleEyes Wed 26-Sep-12 20:50:36

I posted on another thread about it being allegations, and nothing was proved, but some of the evidence is pretty damning.
I wonder what his defence team will say.

ripsishere Thu 27-Sep-12 06:48:59

I've never seen a whole program me with him in. Only little bits and pieces. He seemed like a decent, amusing man.
Just goes to show.

DappyHays Thu 27-Sep-12 11:39:32

He seems so cuddly and lovely. It just shows there is no such thing as a typical abuser.

Frankie Boyle on the other hand is donating all his profits from his Irish gigs to an Irish domestic violence charity, or so he tweeted.

Fairylea Thu 27-Sep-12 11:41:26

Awful. However I'm not surprised... he's always been very me me me and quite insecure having watched a lot of his programmes... that's a bit of a red flag in my experience..
Poor woman.

DappyHays Thu 27-Sep-12 11:44:20

Aren't most performers "me me me" though? Kinda goes with the territory.

CuriousMama Thu 27-Sep-12 11:48:23

Frankie Boyle may not be to everyone's taste but he's very intelligent.

Collins on the other hand hmm

CommunistMoon Thu 27-Sep-12 21:19:36

I remember seeing him 'peform' in a tent at Ashton Court free festival in Bristol 15 or 16 years ago - we thought he was the unfunniest twat ever. No change there, then. Sorry to hear that he is allegedly an abusive tosser, though.

NorthernGobshite Thu 27-Sep-12 21:40:29

Wow, what a fuckwit. Awful.
