A well known TV personality and radio host for the BBC is caught up in a tabloid scandal about his love life.
Ross says he was dealing with financial stresses and had gone one year without sex with his wife and needed an "escape," which came in the form of sex and drugs with a man he met at a place where men frequent for public sex.
The Sun obtained a photo of him snorting drugs off his lover's face. Ross dismisses the year-long relationship as "all about the drugs" and says he is getting counseling.
He's been married to his wife, Denise, for 10 years and they have five children. She is sticking by Ross, saying "“I know 90 percent of Paul is a good man. He’s a good dad. I feel the sex was part of the mephedrone package, I don’t see it as a gay relationship, I see it as part of the drugs."
