Channel 4 deletes repeats of Four in a Bed episode with pervert

Channel 4 has deleted repeats of Four in a Bed episodes after one of the contestants was jailed for having sex with a schoolgirl in one of his hotel’s bedrooms.

Nathan Pearce, 25, claimed he thought his victim was over 16

Pearce, the manager of the King’s Head hotel in Llandovery in Wales, was jailed for 30 months today – after the court heard he had also been found with ‘child sexual abuse images’ of a girl believed to be aged 9-11.

He featured in Channel 4’s popular B&B show – where four different hotel owners rate each other – in May last year.

A court was told he had sex with a 15-year-old girl in his own four-star hotel – and even begged her to do a striptease on camera.

Channel 4 chiefs scrapped plans to repeat the series and removed the episodes from their catch up online player after being told of his conviction, it’s now also emerged.

Swansea Crown Court heard Pearce boasted he could disable the CCTV cameras at the hotel.

The girl told the court: “He wanted me to do a striptease but I refused.”

Pearce accepted he knew she was a schoolgirl – but said he thought she was over 16 and in a sixth form or a college.

He agreed she had been in his room at the hotel but said all they did was sit on a bed and watch television.

He then put £100 in the girl’s pocket even though she said she hadn’t wanted any money from him.

Pearce, who lives at the hotel, was found guilty of three offences of sexual activity with a child and possessing 13 indecent images of children.

The court heard the images, found on a storage device within a computer – appeared to be from “a professional shoot” of a girl aged between nine and 11.

Recorder Ifan Wyn Jones said: “The sad feature of this case is that you have shown no remorse whatsoever.

“In my judgement the difference in ages between you and her is significant

“It is clear to me that your interest in the girl was at least partly because she was in fact 15.

“These were repeated offences committed three times. This is not a case where one isolated offence was committed.

“Sexual intercourse took place on all three occasions. On the first occasion you gave her £100 in cash. That in itself is an aggravating feature.”

Pearce was also made subject to a sexual harm prevention order.

The Four in a Bed series is often repeated – but Channel 4 chiefs pledged the episode with Pearce will never be screened again.

A Channel 4 spokeswoman said: “The episodes featuring this man will not be shown again in the light of the criminal conviction.”

Llandovery hotel manager has been convicted of having sex with a schoolgirl

A manager at the Kings Head in Llandovery is facing jail after he was convicted of having sexual intercourse with a schoolgirl.

Nathan Pearce, aged 25, was found guilty of three offences of sexual activity with a child. He was cleared of a further two, identical charges.

He was also convicted of possessing 13 indecent images of children.

Pearce, who lives at the four star hotel, will be sentenced on April 10.

The 15-year-old girl told the jury that Pearce invited her to his room and they had sexual intercourse with her consent.

Pearce agreed he had met the girl, but told the court there had never been sexual contact between them.

A jury at Swansea crown court heard how rumours began spreading around the town that Pearce was in a relationship with a schoolgirl.

First the girl’s mother heard the rumours, and then her grandmother. And when they quizzed her she told them the rumours were true.

She told the jury that Pearce had invited her to his room at the Kings Head and had sexual intercourse with her consent.

She said that after having sex for the first time he put £100 into her pocket even though she hadn’t wanted any money from him.

They swapped messages via Facebook and exchanged telephone text messages, she added. During one he said he could disable the CCTV cameras at the hotel.

In others, he urged her to send him pictures of her naked.

“He wanted me to do a striptease but I refused,” she added.

He accepted he knew she was a schoolgirl but thought she was in a sixth form or a college.

He agreed she had been in his room at the hotel but said all they did was sit on a bed and watch television.

The court heard that the images, found on a storage device within a computer, appeared to be from “a professional shoot” of a girl aged between nine and 11. A further 21 images were judged to be “borderline.”

The judge, Mr Recorder Ifan Wyn Lloyd Jones, said he would postpone sentence to allow time for a probation officer to prepare a report into Pearce’s background.
