Chris Ingham, from popular YouTube channel The Ingham Family, has denied allegations of sexual misconduct after a teenaged fan accused him of sending inappropriate DMs last October.
The former fan shared, through four ‘notes’ images on Twitter, allegations that Chris encouraged her to meet with him between midnight and 2am at a Disney World resort while she was on holiday with her family. She says that she asked to meet him and his family as she was a big fan, but his messages soon became too personal.
I’m so scared to tweet this but it’s time and it needs to be seen.

“He messaged me multiple times saying how I was so beautiful and pretty and asking me why I didn’t have loads of boyfriends at home… He said how we should sneak into the pool when its closed and how he was contemplating going skinny dipping.” Her account also details that he posted a photo on his Twitter and Instagram of her when they met, and that he wanted to come for a “party” when she was alone in her room.
Since her tweet there have been other former fans of The Ingham Family alleging similar experiences with Chris Ingham.

The family were due to attend Summer in the City this August in London, but the event has since announced that the family will no longer be present. Chris has cited “stress” following “false reports” as the reason for the family not attending the convention.
