A television investigation uncovered the alleged crime, with the prosecution thought to be the first of its kind for that type of offence.

A man has been charged over “sex for rent” allegations in the first prosecution of its kind in the UK after an investigation by television researchers for British tabloid talk show, the Jeremy Kyle show.

Christopher Cox, from Cranleigh, in Surrey in south east England, is due to appear in court next month to face two counts of inciting prostitution for gain and one count of controlling prostitution for gain.

Cox previously featured in an episode of the Kyle Files where a producer posed as a vulnerable woman.
