BBC Anchor Huw Edwards in mental health facility

Published

on

According to a statement from his wife, Huw Edwards, is the prominent BBC presenter facing allegations published in a British tabloid newspaper.

Edwards, known as one of Britain’s leading news anchors, has played a significant role in reporting major events in the country since the early 2000s, including the announcement of Queen Elizabeth’s death in September.

The BBC’s annual report revealed that Edwards was the highest-paid journalist in the corporation, earning over £435,000 ($831,870) in 2022.

However, his wife, Vicky Flind, stated that he is currently dealing with serious mental health issues and has been receiving treatment for severe depression in recent years.

“Huw is suffering from serious mental health issues. As is well documented, he has been treated for severe depression in recent years,” his wife, Vicky Flind said in the statement. “The events of the last few days have greatly worsened matters, he has suffered another serious episode and is now receiving in-patient hospital care where he’ll stay for the foreseeable future.”

The BBC faced turmoil after The Sun published a report claiming that one of its prominent presenters, later revealed to be Edwards, had paid a young individual £35,000 ($67,177) for explicit photos over a three-year period, starting when the person was 17.

The person’s mother alleged that the money fueled a crack cocaine addiction and claimed to have previously complained to the BBC before turning to the tabloid.

No criminal offence

However, the young person later denied these allegations through their lawyer. Another young person came forward and stated that the presenter had threatened them via text message when they threatened to expose Edwards.

The BBC confirmed that Edwards is the presenter under investigation but upheld its policy of not disclosing the name of individuals under scrutiny.

Meanwhile, Ms. Flind released a statement hoping to put an end to the media speculation that had negatively affected her husband’s BBC colleagues. She mentioned that Edwards intends to respond to the published stories once he recovers.

The Metropolitan Police, after conducting their assessment, stated that there was no evidence of Edwards committing a criminal offense. The police’s specialist crime command spoke with various parties involved, including the BBC, the alleged complainant, and the complainant’s family, before reaching this decision.

The BBC acknowledged the police’s statement and expressed gratitude for their swift work.

Why Australia is becoming the new home of the Hollywood blockbuster

Published

on

Australia’s multimillion-dollar campaign to attract Hollywood productions to its shores appears to be paying off.

The allure of Australia lies not only in its picturesque locations but also in its competitive financial incentives.

The government offers generous rebates and tax breaks to international productions, making it an attractive proposition for filmmakers looking to maximise their budgets.

Despite the recent intake of Hollywood productions down under such as ‘The Fall Guy’ and ‘Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga’, Aussie independents are still finding the space to carve their own creative path.

Rob Fantozzi joined the program to discuss the latest in Hollywood, and showcased his own upcoming project – ‘Omerta‘. #featured

American home prices are rising at faster pace now than in the last 20-years.

A recent analysis reveals a jaw dropping surge in the cost of American homes.

Since the start of 2020, U.S. home prices have surged 47% easily outstripping the gains seen in recent decades.

On top of that, home price growth so far this decade is on the verge of surpassing all the growth seen in the 2000s.

Many experts believe this decade’s housing market frenzy was ignited by a perfect storm — the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic triggering an unprecedented rush among buyers.

Tom Hutchens, the Executive Vice President of Production at Angel Oak Mortgage Solutions joins Veronica Dudo to discuss.
