What has Janet said about her sexual assault experience?

During a recent appearance on Loose Women, Janet bravely discussed her past experience with sexual assault.

The much-loved commentator explained: "When I was starting my career in journalism, way back, I had something happen to me, I've set it in the back of my mind as a really bad dream.

"I'd arranged to meet friends for dinner with my husband, and I had a phone call from one of the people I was going to meet, he was a journalist.

"He rang and said instead of meeting at the restaurant we're going to meet at my flat for drinks, so I thought nothing of it.

"I went to his flat, he buzzed me up, I went in and there was no one else there.

"He had locked the door behind me and I went into the living room, I think I was about 22, 23 years old and this man literally threw himself on me.

"Without any warning, he went for me and he could not understand that I would not have sex with him, whatever I said it was not getting through."

Janet added how she froze as the man lunged at her, as her brain tried to process what was happening.

She said she managed to get him off her, and ran down the corridor of his apartment, which led back round to the front door.

Janet was able to unlock it and ran down the stairs into the street.
