1:11 pm
the singer, r kelly, their wickets. the series is now level at 1—1. is due to appear in court in chicago on a series of sexual abuse charges. chris eubank says he's petrified of his son he denies the allegations. losing his big fight tonight, earlier i spoke to the against james degale. .. documentary maker ben zand. it's a crucial career fight, he made a film for the bbc for 33—year—old degale, who is a two—time world champion called "r kelly: sex, girls, and video tapes". and olympic gold medallist, he explained the background to at super middleweight, the allegations against the singer. it has been decades of claims. while chris eubankjunior has yet it started really when he was to break into the sport's elite. de gale, says the loser, thought to have married will have to retire. a 15—year—old singer when he was 27. there have been numerous allegations that is all for me, now it is back around him but he is only to you. been charged once before and this is significant. thank you. that is it for us. the he has been charged with ten counts next news on bbc one is at seven of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, o'clock. thought to be based around four allegedly victims, three who are thought to be between 13 to 16. there is a lot of rumours and allegations for a time and this is the second
1:12 pm
time he has been taken to court and could actually face jail time so it is a big moment. for years and years he was one of the most famous r&b singers of all times but he has never been able to shake these allegations and over the last three years more and more women have been coming out and saying similar things, that he has been mistreating them, locking them in rooms, there was allegations around sex cults, a haram of women he lived with, and beyond that there have been allegations of sexual interaction with underage women. it is thought, the original case in 2002 was based on a sex video that allegedly showed r kelly having sex with a woman who was claimed to be 14 years old. he was acquitted because they could not identify who was in the video. it is thought now there may be another sex video that is even clearer, that people in the video are saying specifically the ages of the people involved, which could change everything really. he denies all of this,
1:13 pm
as he always has and it is going to be a long court case. your documentary went into a lot of detail looking at the background, notjust at him as an artist but the music genre he works in, and some of the cultural things that apply. what did you find? it is kind of the world in general is questionable i suppose. r kelly is a man with a lot of power, he was influential at the time and it is shocking whether these allegations turn out to be true or not, whatever happens in the court case, it seems that the music industry has failed and these allegations have been going on for a long time. he is being taken to court once and i have spoken to so many people who worked with him over the years and they thought something was up but did not say anything. for a long time these women were ignored and now they are being listened to. r kelly denies all of this but it
1:14 pm
seems like the music industry has a bit of an awakening to do in response to when people have allegations around them to adequately investigate. especially things like his record label and people around him, if they feel something is up it probably should have said earlier. this feels like ten to 15 years late. time for a look at the weather nick. it is gorgeous across much of the uk. england and wales get the lion's share of the sunshine survived this afternoon. we had more cloud into northern ireland and western parts of scotla nd northern ireland and western parts of scotland producing patchy main and that is going to bear down on the western side of england and wales so the afternoon. northern ireland baiting up again. temperatures well above normal for the type of year. patchy rain on

this weather front will die away and we are looking at low cloud, mist and fog more widespread than recent nights. south—east england, northern scotla nd nights. south—east england, northern scotland see frost and temperatures just below freezing in the coldest parts of sunday. it is going to take a lot of time for this low mist and fog to clear away so a gradual improvement to sunny skies. when any of it does lingo temperatures are held down compared with elsewhere. there may be a degree or so lower across some spots compared with recent days but they are still well above normal for recent days but they are still well above normalfor a recent days but they are still well above normal for a time recent days but they are still well above normalfor a time of recent days but they are still well above normal for a time of year and generally fine weather continues into the new week. that is your forecast. that is your forecast.
