Tony and Julie Wadsworth attended court today over alleged sex with an underage boy between1992-1996
The alleged victim claims he had sex with Julie Wadsworth about 15 times in the 1990s, in the open or at her home, a court heard.
Her husband, fellow broadcaster Tony Wadsworth, watched the sessions and even acted as a look-out in nearby woods, the jury was told.
Former BBC Radio Leicester stars Mrs Wadsworth, 60, and her 69-yearold husband, of Broughton Astley, Leics, deny five counts of outraging public decency between 1992 and 1996.

She denies 12 indecent assaults on underage boys and he denies 10 counts of the same charge.
Today, Warwick Crown Court heard how the alleged victim, now 37, tried to contact Mrs Wadsworth a few years later.
The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, claims he lost his virginity to the presenter after she seduced him in secluded woods.
Five years later, he used the “contact a presenter” link on the BBC Leicester website in a bid to reestablish contact, the court heard.
He also reportedly sent messages to her via Facebook. One message is said to have read: “Hiya, it has been ages. I still look back very fondly on the fun times.”

Another reportedly said: “I hope you don’t see me as a stalker or anything like that, I am a genuine guy. It would be nice to meet again anyway.”
He received no replies and later went to police, the court heard. David Hislop, QC, defending, said the alleged victim was angry because Mrs Wadsworth had rejected his advances.
The man replied: “Yeah, I was probably too old.” He denied he became “wholly obsessed” with Mrs Wadsworth and complained to police when she ignored his attempts to contact her.
He added: “Would I have times where I was drunk and depressed and thought about it? Yes.
“That is probably why you’re not meant to have sex with underage kids, because that is what it does to them.”

A second alleged victim yesterday told how he and other teenage boys watched Mrs Wadsworth sunbathe naked in woods at Mancetter Park, near Atherstone, Warks.
She was joined by her husband and they later had sex against a tree, it was alleged. The man, now 36, said: “I was 14. We saw the lady sunbathing topless.
The man was stood back a bit. “They said ‘why don’t you come and see us do some stuff?’
“So we followed them into the undergrowth and we sat near the edge of the bushes. “They then had sex in front of us.”
The trial continues.
