Stan Collymore, who was 33 at the time, was caught out by undercover journalists in March 2004 for sending lured text messages of a sexual nature, a practice known as ‘sexting’
The obvious chatroom bob said he sent a “couple” involved in dogging, texts messages that included “If you fancy having some fun this evening, ill (I’ll) be at the cp (car park) where we met originally.”
The claims followed Collymore’s reported physical abuse towards popular television personality Ulrika Johnson.
Collymore was at the time a soccer pundit on BBC Radio Five Live. He was formerly a footballer at Liverpool, Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest, in the position of striker.
Collymore justified the sexts saying it was his “self-destructive curiosity” that drove him to dogging. Yet only 10-years later, Collymore, apparently forgetting his past, criticised drunken student Liam Stacey for his questionable text messaging, saying, “I’m proud to say I did report Liam Stacey. People need to report every incident of racist behaviour.”
