Jill Dando was shot dead in 1999. Her murder remains a mystery.

Jill Dando tried to expose the elite paedophile rings that was operating at the BBC before she died, it has been reported.

The murdered television presenter tried to report a culture of sexual abuse and child molestation involving some of TV’s biggest stars, but was routinely ignored and sidelined.

A number of people had approached Ms Dando about the DJs, celebrities and other staff who were involved in organised abuse.

However, despite repeated attempts to report it, no-body wanted to know.

The 37-year-old TV presenter was shot dead on April 26, 1999, on the doorstep of her home in West London. Police have still been unable to uncover those responsible.

A source who worked at the BBC who wished to remain unnamed, reported in an interview with the Daily Star: “I don’t recall the names of all the stars now and don’t want to implicate anyone, but Jill said they were surprisingly big names.

“I think she was quite shocked when told about images of children and that information on how to join this horrible paedophile ring was freely available.

“Jill said others had complained to her about sexual matters and that some female workmates also claimed they had been groped or assaulted.

“Nothing had been done and there seemed to be a policy of turning a blind eye.I think it was in the mid-1990s. She was seen as the face of the BBC and a magnet for women with problems.”

Commenting on the reports, a BBC spokesman said they always investigate any allegations of this nature, but added: “We’ve not seen anything that substantiates these claims.”

The BBC has been rocked by paedophilia scandals after thousands of people came forward to report the abuse they suffered at the hands of disgraced TV presenter Jimmy Savile, who worked at the BBC. Recently, Rolf Harris has been jailed for his part in the sexual abuse of children and police have made further arrests against TV stars who have so far, not been named.

A year before she died, Miss Dando joined a campaign to help children spot paedophiles.

Shortly afterwards, she received death threats, which got so severe that the BBC had to be placed in lockdown at one time and came under the control of armed guards.

Barry George was found guilty of her murder in 2001, but his conviction was quashed in 2008.

Fellow BBC presenter Sally Jones said that when she was alive, Ms Dando herself had to fend off many unwanted sexual advances from those working at the BBC.

Commenting on the allegations, the BBC said that it always investigates allegations of this nature and added that there was “no evidence” to support these reports.
