'Take Me Out' contestant Wen-Jing Mo claims Aaron Withers ''manipulated'' her into bed on their TV date as he hid his violent past from her
'Take Me Out' contestant Wen-Jing Mo claims Aaron Withers "manipulated" her into bed on their TV date.
Pretty Wen, 28, was chosen by Aaron on Saturday night's (07.01.12) show but she is furious he hid his past from her, which includes being a £50-an-hour male escort and being convicted for punching a girl in a pub.
She says if she had known what he was like there was no way she would have slept with him on their exotic date in Cyprus.
She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I'm shocked. There is definitely no way that if I knew a guy had hit a woman that I would have slept with him. I have been domestically abused before - when I was 17 - and now my face has a permanent scar from it, a deep scar. I would definitely not have slept with him if I'd known he had punched a woman."
Bosses of the ITV1 dating show - which is hosted by Paddy McGuinness - have decided to cut footage of Wen and Aaron's date from Saturday's (14.01.12) show, in which she planned to tell viewers she had only agreed to date Aaron after leaving her light on by accident.
Wen says she understands why producers have cut it but is furious with Aaron for putting her in that situation.
She said: "I'm not blaming ITV, and I do understand everyone has a past, but it's him who I'm angry with.
"He manipulated me just to have sex with him. He manipulated this whole situation. Not only has he made a fool out of me, he's got me cut out of the show - so I'm really p***ed off."
Meanwhile, up to 90 contestants of the dating show had a wild sex and booze party at a £4.5million mansion, which they trashed, as they celebrated the first night of the new series on Saturday.
One reveller told The Sun newspaper: "There was loads of sex going on - people were doing it in front of each other."
