Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby were left repelled on This Morning as a man secretly accused of rape spoke out about his offensive experience.
With TV viewers gripped by ITV play Liar – in which a man is accused of rape by a date despite irreverence his ignorance – Tuesday’s show saw Kayode Modupe-Ojo pity his own story, observant that his life was incited upside down by a fake accusation.
He explained that his distress began after he was befriended on social media by the lady and went on a couple of dates with her – only for the police to then show up on his doorstep after she claimed he had assaulted her.

‘The whole thing…that’s when my whole life changed,’ he explained.
‘That hit on the door, it’s a very surreal moment.’
Kayode subsequently spent 3 weeks in jail before being bailed – with his case eventually being thrown out after the judge beheld too many discrepancies in the justification given – but as he explained, the repairs had already been finished due to his name being done public.
‘Going by that routine was very life-changing and deleterious since while we was in jail my name was out there in the media,’ he recalled.
‘This was good before any hearing or any event to put my name forward. I felt the whole universe was very discerning to reject me.’
This Morning front weekdays at 10.30am, while Liar continues on ITV next Monday night at 9pm.
