TV presenter Anne Robinson has said women must accept workplaces are "sexually treacherous" environments but warned they must also stand up for themselves.

Speaking about sexual harassment, the 73-year-old said that "I certainly didn't run crying to the loo" if a man "tried to pat my bum".

The former host of 'The Weakest Link' said women were "still having to put up with inappropriate behaviour from men while not doing anything about it".

Robinson has made a new BBC documentary which explores provocative issues around equality, including sexual harassment.

"It angers me why this behaviour has been allowed to go on for so long," she said.
