FORMER Radio 1 DJ Tommy Vance was dubbed “king of the orgies” during a probe into BBC sex scandals.

The Friday Night Rock Show star was named by a BBC producer as one of the “guilty ones” in the payola scandal that shook the Beeb in the 70s.

The unnamed producer made the allegation in a letter to the now-closed News of the World after it claimed other DJs had plugged records for music companies in return for prostitutes.

The accuser wrote: “If you are going to tell the proper story, I suggest you hit some guilty ones.” He then named five people, including “Tommy Vance and (name redacted) who are king of the orgies”.
