A married Hollywood star has been accused of performing a sexual act on himself during a massage at a spa in Fife, Scotland. The revelations are part of a court case, in which the masseuse involved is suing her employer for unfair dismissal, after she was fired following the incident. The celebrity, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was staying in the seaside town while attending a pro-celebrity golf tournament at St Andrews in October 2004. While visiting a hotel spa for relaxation, he allegedly cast aside the towel covering him during his treatment and started pleasuring himself, just moments before his wife went in for a massage with the same therapist. The aggrieved masseuse told a Dundee court on Friday (17MAR06), "It was disgusting. Even though he was a Hollywood superstar, I couldn't believe he thought he could get away with something like that. "He abused me and I consider that a criminal act."
The BBC drama starring Aidan Turner returns to BBC One on September 4th.
