Narinder Kaur ‘seeking legal advice’ as Laurence Fox ‘upskirting’ tweet probed

Narinder Kaur is “seeking legal advice” as police continue their investigation into a social media post by Laurence Fox in relation to an “upskirting offence”, her agent has said.

In a now-deleted tweet, posted on Tuesday, Fox shared a compromising image of Kaur, a broadcaster who rose to fame on Big Brother and now appears regularly on Good Morning Britain and GB News. The post remained on Fox’s account until it was deleted on Thursday.

Kaur’s agent told the PA news agency she is “seeking legal advice” as the police investigation continues.

They said: “Narinder is understandably upset and still coming to terms with what’s happened to her.

“She thanks everyone who has supported her so far. She’s currently seeking legal advice and awaiting further response from the Metropolitan Police.”

Posting on X, formerly Twitter, on Thursday, Kaur confirmed “it is now a police matter” and said the image was “unimaginably mortifying” as she thanked people on the social media platform for their support.

“I know people are saying not to feel embarrassed and mortified but I am. I’m so incredibly upset that people are looking at my privates and laughing. It’s unimaginably mortifying,” she said.

The Metropolitan Police told the PA news agency it had “been made aware of a post on social media regarding an upskirting offence” and was investigating the circumstances.

Fox addressed the situation in an extended post on X on Friday, in which he said he “would like to apologise” to Kaur and then went on to say “it’s not my fault” Kaur was pictured in the compromising image.

He also criticised Kaur, those who support her, and those who “want to silence” him.

Upskirting, taking pictures of people under their clothes without their permission, became a specific criminal offence in 2019. Offenders can face up to two years in jail and be placed on the sex offenders register.

The police investigation comes a week after Fox was ordered to pay £180,000 in damages to two people he called “paedophiles” in a social media row, after losing a High Court libel battle.

The former actor used to present on GB News but was fired in October following an on-air rant about journalist Ava Evans.

The PA news agency has contacted Fox for comment.
