A former pal of Britain's most prolific serial rapist of women, John Worboys, describes the chilling moment the predator once drugged him after an argument.

Dave Hanson, who met Worboys when they both worked as male strippers in London, says they had a disagreement when Worboys wanted to go out drinking but he, Dave, refused.

Recalling the disturbing events in Channel 5's Catching The Black Cab Rapist, he says: "He [Worboys] kept going on and on and on.

"But I said, 'Look mate I'm not doing it'."

Worboys then changed tack and offered him a drink which Dave drank very quickly.

He quickly became seriously unwell and felt "funny" and "dizzy".

"I remember going to the toilet and I remember leaning against the cubicle and actually hallucinating. I was dizzy. I felt sick, numb," Dave recalls.

He said he had a "feeling of a complete loss of control" and then suffered memory loss and continued to feel sick for days afterwards.

By this point in time, Worboys was very familiar with spiking people's drinks.

He drugged, raped, and sexually assaulted over 100 victims in the back of his black cab between 2000 and 2008.

Worboys preyed on women looking for taxis leaving bars and clubs late at night, coercing them to have a drink with him to celebrate his "win" on the lottery, but that drink was spiked and his story was a lie.

When Worboys was finally arrested and charged in 2008 and given an indeterminate sentence in 2009 at trial, his victims thought they were safe, he would be kept in prison for the rest of his life.

But in 2018, it became known that the parole board was planning to release him.

Predator: Catching The Black Cab Rapist is tonight at 9pm, Channel 5
