Former Star of BBC Reality Show Alleges Bullying in Latest Job

Jeremy Spake, known for his role in BBC's Airport, claims he was bullied out of his most recent job

Jeremy Spake, the star of a popular 1990s BBC reality show called Airport, has come forward with allegations of bullying in his latest job. The 54-year-old, who rose to fame as the Russian-speaking ground services manager for Aeroflot in the 1996 series, has filed an unfair dismissal case, stating that he was tormented by air traffic controllers. He has already received substantial damages in a settlement with the Isle of Man airport, where he was employed. Now, he is taking the Department of Infrastructure, which runs the airport, to court for a personal injury claim.

After his stint on Airport, Jeremy Spake presented The Toughest Job in Britain on BBC TV and authored two books. In 2018, he made a career comeback as the deputy director of the Isle of Man airport in Ronaldsway. However, he claims that his time there was marked by extreme overwork, lack of support, and failure to address harassment. His advocate, Chris Grimson, detailed these issues in the island's High Court. The Department of Infrastructure argues that this claim should have been included in the initial tribunal case.
