Don Burke denies allegations

Don Burke has denied extensive allegations of sexual harassment on A Current Affair by stating that he could not remember any of the incidents and would never say the things he was quoted as saying.

The TV personality has admitted to behaving like a bully, but denied being a sexual predator.

He recently told?A Current Affair?he was?the victim of a "witch hunt" and attempted to?blame some of his behaviour on self-diagnosed?Asperger's?syndrome.?

Speaking to Fairfax Media, Wilson said she was put on the same table as the?Burke's Backyard?star for the 1996 Logie Awards.?

"He seemed like a nice bloke," she said. "The awards ceremony started and I remember I was wearing a navy blue velvet maternity evening dress.

"I turned around to look at the stage and I said to Don –?because we'd been talking –?'Please excuse my back' because I was turning my back to him.

"He said, 'Not at all. Do you mind if I lick it?' "

Wilson said her husband was sitting next to her and heard what was said.?

"It was gross," she said.

"I wasn't devastated or traumatised by it ... it's nothing compared to what he's allegedly done to some people. I didn't really talk much to him during the [rest of the] night.

"Obviously?there were times as a woman in a man's world where things were said to me.

"But the only time I remember someone in the TV industry saying anything [that] gross to me was Don Burke."

Wilson's husband, Channel 7 reporter Brendan Donohoe, said he couldn't remember Burke's exact words but confirmed the incident took place.

The story is well-known among the couple's circle of friends.

On Monday, Wilson announced she was stepping down as?The Age's?chief football writer after 19 years in the role.

The two-time Walkley Award winner will remain with the newspaper as a regular AFL columnist and will also appear on the?Real Footy?podcast.?
