Denies guilt, of course.

I used to love that show growing up, now I don't think I could watch an episode without focusing on the repulsion of what that pervert did. Well done to Sarah for taking those first steps in making Hughes accountable for his actions, and to the other survivors who also came forward to tell their stories. It's not an easy path to travel, but hopefully they can now start healing properly, knowing that justice has been done and he didn't just get away with it. What he did to those girls is beyond despicable.

I can't believe none of those adults said anything at the time. Then I guess things were a lot different back then, after all Rolf Harris was getting away with it as well. I heard the queen has taken the portrait of him down :<|

I don't know, all I heard was whatever it was has been taken down. I don't suppose she'd have one of him on her wall come to think of it :lol:
