The broadcaster is now investigating sexual harassment allegations made against the presenter.

A spokesman for Mr Jones said: "Whilst he accepts that his behaviour over a decade ago was occasionally juvenile, as was that of others, he never meant to harass or distress and he strongly denies any inappropriate contact".

He has had a very long career in entertainment, releasing a long list of albums and presenting shows across the BBC and on ITV.

Choirboy Aled shot to fame at the age of 12.

Bangor born Aled Jones, host of the BBC's Songs Of Praise, has been taken off air by the BBC after sexual harassment allegations have been made against him.

Although he has not appeared on the BBC since last month, Aled is still working for commercial rivals and is due to host his Sunday radio slot on Classic FM as normal today.

In 2004, Aled Jones featured as a contestant on the second series of Strictly Come Dancing and he proved to be very popular on the show, finishing in fourth place behind Julian Clary, Denise Lewis and Jull Halfpenny.

He has also presented a variety of other shows including Cash in The Attic, Escape to the Country, The One Show and Daybreak.

The married father-of-two, 46, is accused of sending inappropriate messages to a female member of staff at the Corporation "over a decade ago".

Aled shot to fame in the 1980s after singing the theme from The Snowman and in 2013 he received an MBE for his services to music and broadcasting.

"He is, however, deeply sorry for any upset caused and hopes this matter is resolved soon".
