A cabaret performer accused of raping a 22-year-old woman during a Halloween bash at a swingers’ club told police he had taken Viagra before the party.

Married dad Jeremy Frazer Newsome Smith, 45, denies raping the woman at La Chambre in the Attercliffe area of Sheffield. He told police they got on really well and had consensual sex.

In a police interview read to the jury at Sheffield Crown Court, Smith said: “She wanted to have sex, definitely. I’ve got no doubt about that in my mind. At no point did she shout ‘stop’ or give any sign she was not comfortable in any way, shape or form.”
