'He rubbed margarine on my privates' Former TV weatherman Fred Talbot's alleged victim tells of camping trip 'horse play'
Former TV weatherman Fred Talbot smeared margarine on a 12-year-old boy’s genitals, it was claimed yesterday.
The alleged victim – now 51 – said it happened during a school camping trip to the Caledonian Canal led by Talbot, then a teacher.
He said: “Someone jumped on me, just mucking around, nothing serious but it finished with Fred rubbing margarine on my testicles and that is how it stopped.
“I thought it was part of the horseplay and didn’t think about it, to be honest.
“Looking back as an adult, I thought it was an inappropriate thing to do.”
