A BBC TV and radio presenter could face a jail term for secretly filming a series of sexual videos with more than ten partners using a hidden camera at his home in south London.

Benjamin Wilkins could face a maximum sentence of two years for voyeurism.

The 36-year-old Benjamin Wilkins seduced more than ten of his colleagues at his home where he had sex with them. Meanwhile, he filmed the encounters with a mini camera hidden in a smoke alarm. His voyeurism was exposed after his girlfriend and mother of his children, discovered the dirty videos at his home and called the police.

Former colleagues and lovers found it hard to believe when they heard the news of what the "gentleman-like and trusted" Wilkins had done. Some of the women Wilkins lured have been promoted to senior positions in TV and radio and their names have been kept secret for legal reasons.

It is reported that the 36-year-old hid the miniature camera in his bathroom to film his partners when they were in the shower, and stored the footage in his computer. It is inconceivable to think what the consequences would have been had the footage been uploaded to the Internet.

Wilkins has so far admitted the ten counts of voyeurism, which involved six women who were seduced to have sex with him at his home in south London from 2005 to 2008. Police confirmed that over ten women had been secretly filmed, but it was not necessary to have all them to file charges against Wilkin as he has pleaded guilty.

One count of voyeurism could face a maximum sentence of two years in U.K. If the sentence goes is carried out, Wilkins will also be on the sex offenders register.
