Music professor at one of Britain's top drama schools 'spanked male students during private lessons'

A professor of music at one of Britain’s top drama schools spanked students and asked one to call him daddy during private tuition lessons for his own sexual kicks, a court has heard.

Ross Campbell allegedly made one student bend over his knee as he spanked him and told him he had been 'a naughty boy', and was said to have reduced another to tears after thrashing his buttocks following a poor rendition of Being Alive from the musical Company.

The 56-year-old head of music at the prestigious Guildford School of Acting (GSA), is accused of sexually abusing three adult male pupils who had come to his home for one-to-one singing tuition between 2003 and 2011.

He denies four counts of indecent assault and a further seven counts of sexual assault while working at GSA, which is linked to the University of Surrey - and whose alumni include Brenda Blethyn OBE, Michael Ball and Bill Nighy.  (more...)
