What did The Ingham Family YouTube star post on Twitter?
On July 27, 2018, The Sun exclusively revealed Chris had bombarded teenage fans with “sexual” and “creepy” texts despite building a wholesome family man persona.
Chris asked 16-year-old Jessica Simpson to “sneak out” of her family hotel and meet him, telling her he wanted to go “skinny dipping”.
The 34-year-old then asked 19-year-old fan Bella Fearn to send him naked pictures after promising that he could make her a social media star.
He then followed this up by sending threatening messages to a fan, and begged her to not speak out about his conduct, telling her: “Think of my little girls.”
On August 25, 2018, Chris broke his silence in a lengthy 23-minute video posted to YouTube, saying he was the victim and slammed the “witch hunt” against him.
