Shocking footage has been released of a creepy man following a young woman into her hotel room.
Ellie Flynn is an investigative reporter, and recently went undercover to look at the threats of violence and sexual assault women face when on a night out.
She went out in Liverpool on a Saturday night and pretended to be drunk and alone to see what would happen.
At one point, Ellie, who was 'slumped on a bollard' at the time, was approached by a man who invited her to a bar and offered her some cannabis.
After rejecting his advances, Ellie headed off but was followed back to her hotel and into her room by that same man.
In a a clip from the documentary, Ellie is seen confronting the stranger, asking him why he was following her.
He replies: "We come together."
To which Ellie says: "No, we didn't come together, you followed me. I never said to come."
After eventually agreeing to leave, he apologised before turning around and telling Ellie: "Come on, give me a kiss."
Fortunately, Ellie was well protected and had a security team on hand and a safe word that she could use if anything happened.
However, she said that her heart was still racing when she spotted the man following her.
Writing in The Times, Ellie said: "Afterwards, I was hit by a flood of emotion: thankful my night was over, but terrified about what his return to the streets could mean for other drunk, vulnerable women."
In a statement, Merseyside Police said it was aware of the documentary, but had received no report of the incident by the journalist.
"We are aware of the forthcoming Dispatches programme – Undercover: Sexual Harassment – The Truth, which is due to be aired on Monday night (12 December)," a spokesperson said.
"We have not seen the programme in advance, however, we believe that the female reporter, alleges that she was subject to sexual harassment in the city centre and was even followed back to her room by a man.
"We were not contacted by the programme makers about the incident and have contacted them for further details, as we have no report of any complaint involving the reporter."
A survey of just over 1,000 women conducted for Channel 4 by YouGov found that almost a quarter were followed after a night out.
It also found that one in 10 have had their drink spiked at some point and a quarter had been raped or sexually assaulted while on a night out.
Undercover: Sexual Harassment – The Truth is on Channel 4 tonight at 10pm.
