Flirty Mel gave him ‘the come-on’

Daily Star - - News - By JERRY LAW­TON­ton@dai­

A SAUCY jour­nal­ist has ad­mit­ted she gave for­mer de­fence chief Sir Michael Fal­lon “the come-on”.

Colum­nist Melissa Kite re­vealed she flirted with MPs to get scoops for The Spec­ta­tor.

She said she “took ad­van­tage” of Sir Michael to fur­ther her ca­reer and wished to apol­o­gise to ev­ery male MP she had taken to lunch and had “shock­ingly ex­ploited”. But she said Sir Michael, who quit last week amid sex­ual ha­rass­ment claims, was the “per­fect gent”. And that was de­spite the fact that she “ever so slightly gave him the come- on” more than once and may have touched his knee.

Sir Michael quit af­ter it emerged he touched the knee of ra­dio broad­caster Ju­lia Hart­ley-Brewer.

Melissa, 45, said she also “kissed a few frogs at West­min­ster think­ing maybe I’d marry an MP”. She said one MP shut him­self in a cup­board with her and an­other asked her to marry him.

She said: “There can be no ex­cuse for gen­uine ha­rass­ment and abuse. But flirt­ing? Flirt­ing makes the world go round.”
