Dave Lee Travis 'Groped Me After Lambada Dance'
A woman has told a court that DJ Dave Lee Travis indecently assaulted her after forcing her to dance the lambada with him.
The former British Airways employee described how she met the broadcaster during a corporate party in 1993 where he was working as a host.
During the party the DJ organised an impromptu dancing competition where couples were asked to do the close contact dance, the lambada.
After winning the competition with her partner the woman described how Mr Travis decided he wanted to dance with her.
She told the court: "He grabbed me as his partner and started dancing with me as his partner."
She described how she quickly became very uncomfortable with the way Mr Travis was dancing with her.
She said: "He kept pinning me on to his right leg... he was sexually aroused."
She said the incident made her feel very uncomfortable and so she escaped as quickly as possible after the dance.
She said: "He was old enough to be my father... I just thought 'dirty perv'."
A few weeks later the DJ was again hosting a BA corporate event, this time at Manchester Airport.
The woman, who was in her mid-twenties at the time, said the broadcaster quickly saw she was there too.
She said: "DLT made a beeline for me."
She told the court her reaction to seeing him for a second time at a works event was: "Oh s***, really?"
Mr Travis convinced her to again dance the lambada with him, an idea she said she reluctantly went along with.
Afterwards she said Mr Travis dragged her back to a table he was sharing with bosses from British Airways where she alleged he tried to force his hand up her dress.
She said of her colleagues: "They would have just seen me sat on his knee... they wouldn't have known I was being pinned down."
The woman described how she used both hands to push his hands back down.
Asked why she did not report the incident in the 1990s, the woman said: "I was just too young and too stupid to know. If I had said something then it wouldn't have happened to other people."
Mr Travis, 68, whose real name is David Griffin, denies thirteen counts of indecent assault and one count of sexual assault.
The trial continues.
