Aaliyah Read, then 17, claims she was “targeted” by “predator” Boateng who got his colleague to stop the patrol car next to her outside McDonald’s where she worked.

The nervous youngster who suffers from anxiety attacks said he didn’t even visit the restaurant but went straight for her as she sat on her own on a lunch break in July 2018.

Despite being investigated for demanding Aaliyah, now 18, give him her number he was allowed to jet off and film for the hit ITV show earlier this year.

Now the force has confirmed he will be hauled before their professional standards branch for a string of allegations between 2018 and 2019.
