Blue Peter star: 'I felt guilty until proven innocent'

Former Blue Peter presenter, Diane Louise Jordan, is speaking out for the first time following the conviction of a woman who admits falsely accusing Jordan of harassment. An 18-month suspended sentence was handed down to the woman.

She tells the Today programme "It is a horrible thing to be hanging over you for three years, for something you know you haven't done."

Diane Louise Jordan was issued a controversial PIN - a police information notice - or what is often known as a harassment notice, after false allegations were made to police.

She says she was unaware that signing this notice, would create legal problems for her in the future.
