Police are appealing for information after a fake game show host invited two men to hotels to take part in nude challenges that he filmed.
A 28-year-old man reported to police that he had been approached by an 29-year-old man claiming to be in the entertainment industry.
The man had asked him to take part in a fake game show in return for the chance to win £5,000, in June 2018.

The victim was asked to go to a hotel in Newham, London, to take part in several nude ‘challenges’ as part of the show, which were filmed.
The suspect then kept the footage, believed to be for his own gratification.
A 31-year-old man was also identified on February 2, and he reported that in August 2013, the suspect coerced him to go to a hotel in south east London and take part in similar activities.
As part of the investigation into these offences, a 29-year-old man was arrested on January 30, 2019 on suspicion of voyeurism and released under investigation.
Police are urging anyone who may be a victim to come forward after a second victim was also identified (file image)

‘I urge anyone who may be a victim of similar crimes or incidents from 2013 to the present day, to come forward with information.
