Anna Richardson leaks her own naked selfies for revenge porn show

Nick Duffy August 15, 2015

TV host Anna Richardson has leaked her own naked pictures to a revenge porn website, as part of a social experiment.

The ‘Secret Eaters’ host – who is currently dating Sue Perkins of the Great British Bake Off –  leaked her own nude selfies for Channel 4 show ‘Revenge Porn’.

The star told the Sun she wanted to explore the issue of angry exes uploading pictures to the internet without consent, which is now a crime in the UK.

Explaining that she wanted to truly experience what it was like to have pictures online, she said: “The only way I felt I was going to truly understand revenge porn was to experience it, so I decided to take some pornographic pictures of myself.”

“There are specific revenge porn websites where guys can upload photos without the woman’s consent, and name them.

“I uploaded them to a specific revenge porn site acting as an angry ex.”

The pictures received hundreds of thousands of hits and hateful comments.

Emily Jones of Channel 4 added: “Five years ago hardly anyone had even heard of revenge porn.

“In the past year it has made international news, and changed UK law. It has also spiralled in popularity and has the potential to effect anyone who has ever taken an intimate photograph.

“This programme will serve as a warning, but will also take an intelligent look at how the Internet has changed the way we control our own image.”

Revenge Porns airs tomorrow at 10pm on Channel 4.
