Anne alleged that Dancing On Ice contestant Mark Little, 59, who is married, sent a string of flirty messages to her after she contacted him on Facebook in 2015. Anne, 38, told The Sun: “I watched him on The Wright Stuff and I was a huge fan of him when I was a child when he was on Neighbours. “So I added him on Facebook and started talking to him. I started to find him attractive and started sending him these sexual messages.” Reflecting on the alleged messages she received back from the actor, she said he replied: “I am drunk and horny.
“Happy new year. Sorry…you are like a drug…I am addicted to fantasising about you.”
She added he began messaging her “all the time” with “explicit” messages and also told her he liked her lingerie.
A spokesperson for Mark told the publication the messages have been “completely misconstrued”.
They told the publication: “The nature of these messages has been completely misconstrued and it is disappointing they are being used in an effort to mischaracterise Mark.”
Express.co.uk has contacted a representative for Mark for comment.
Mark is married to Cath Farr, who has produced many of his live shows and films.
The couple have two children together, who also work in the showbiz industry.
Mark is best known for playing Joe Mangel for three years from 1988 in soap Neighbours.
He has also presented Channel 4’s The Big Breakfast in 1994.
Tomorrow night, he will dance in the skate-off with Brianne after receiving the lowest votes from the judges and public last week.
The actor failed to impress the judges with his routine to Men At Work’s hit Down Under.
Ahead of his performance, Mark told Brianne he was “getting angry” in rehearsals as he struggled on the ice.
In a video posted on Dancing On Ice’s Twitter page with 255,000 followers, he said: “I thought rodeo was the tough sport. No, no.
“They’ve got nothing on ice dancers.”
The actor could then be seen wobbling on the ice, to which Brianne said to him: “I need you to be aggressive. I need to you to start getting angry.”
“You keep saying that,” he replied. “I am getting a little angry! I am angry, this is really making me angry!”
Dancing On Ice continues tomorrow at 6pm on ITV.
