Comic Katherine Ryan 'confronted TV sex pest' and labelled him 'predator' on popular TV programme | The Sun

COMEDIAN Katherine Ryan confronted a telly colleague and accused him of being a sexual predator, she revealed. 

The Canadian star, 38, made the allegation in front of others working on a popular programme, she added.



She made the revelation on her new Amazon Prime series Backstage With Katherine Ryan to fellow comic Sara Pascoe, 41, who Kathryn said knows the alleged predator too.

She told her: “I raised it. I called him a predator to his face and in front of everyone every day.”

But she also said: “What am I supposed to do? It’s such a messy thing because I don’t have proof.

"What, am I not supposed to feed my children because of someone else?”

Kathryn Ryan has appeared on several well-known shows including Have I Got News For You, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Mock The Week and a League Of Their Own.

Sara, 41, also admitted she reported a male celebrity to a TV channel after receiving a phone call from a viewer claiming to have been raped by him. 

She said: “Have you ever done a job and then someone's contacted you and said: 'That's my rapist'? 

“I had it on a job recently where I've had to go to the channel, and it's that whole thing because you feel such a sense of responsibility but you also want it to be dealt with well… it's so complicated.”
