She's now the Kim Kardashian of Norwich
A grocery store produce manager and a teenage employee have lost their jobs after they were filmed in the throes of passion in the store’s office. While workplace trysts aren’t unheard of, this particular event was filmed by a group of young men, and the video went viral. The young woman is receiving backlash for her part in the affair, but it’s also come with some unexpected consequences.
Hot and Heavy
On Saturday, Feb. 10 at the Tesco grocery store in Stalham, Norfolk, a group of teen boys walked past the manager’s office that had a window with open blinds. They noticed that there was something going on that wasn’t workplace appropriate. The 35-year-old fresh produce manager Neville Fox was committing a sexual act with 19-year-old bakery manager Caitlyn Kirby.
The boys started filming the not-so secretive scene, even trying to alert the couple by throwing a pebble at the window to no avail. The boys proceeded to post the 40-second video to the social media app WhatsApp where it quickly went viral. During the video, they mentioned that the man was a manager of the store.
By Monday, Feb. 12, the video had reached the upper management of Tesco, and the amorous pair were escorted off of the property. Caitlyn cried as she was led out, and Neville was “distraught” according to eyewitnesses.
One of the young men who filmed the now-infamous video told The Sun that the whole ordeal is “bloody hilarious.”
“The manager is known in the town so we knew who he was. They didn’t look over at the window and never noticed we were there in the slightest,” he said. However, Tesco and the couple in the video didn’t find the incident funny in the least.
Neville refused to comment on anything, but he said that “it’s not true” that he’s been fired. It appears as though his 54-year-old long-term girlfriend deleted all of his pictures from her social media. Tesco released a statement that said, “We are taking this issue very seriously and launched an immediate investigation.”
Caitlyn realized that a video of her and Neville was spreading because a coworker showed it to her. She was so embarrassed that she decided to quit her job after she was told that the incident was being investigated. The young woman knew that she couldn’t keep her identity a secret since the footage went viral.
Caitlyn bravely spoke about how she came to have the affair with Neville and how her life has been affected as a result of it. She had been flirting with the produce manager — who is 16 years her senior — for a few weeks because he said that he had broken up with his older girlfriend.
“I had just finished but he was still working when one thing led to another at about seven in the evening. It just seemed to happen out of nowhere. He made the first move, I went along with it and it just spiraled out of control. The whole world has seen what happened next,” she explained.
She also described the act as “a spur-of-the-moment thing” and “a moment of total madness” that she’s “paid a high price” for.
“He’s quite a bit older than me so maybe he should have known better but so should I,” she said. “The person I feel really awful for is Neville’s partner. She must be mortified about it all.”
Caitlyn deleted her social media because she was bombarded with hateful and flirtatious comments from people. “It’s been a really mad week. I think I might move to Brazil to get away from it all,” she said.
Despite all of the negative attention, some of her own siblings are envious of the attention she’s getting. “My older sister’s really jealous. She says we’re now the Kardashians of Norwich. She would definitely have preferred it if she had got fame out of this. She watched the video with me and said she would have expected me to be sitting on a chair.”
Caitlyn apologized to her employers of three years for the “kick in the teeth.”
