‘You’re not wearing panties, it’s turning me on’

A NEWLY resurfaced interview shows Howard Stern harassing Spice Girl Emma Bunton with a torrent of humiliating questions and suggestive comments.

In the 2005 interview, Stern repeatedly makes creepy remarks about Bunton's body and asks deeply personal questions, including at what age she first had her period, The Sun reports.

It comes to light as the showbiz world soul searches about how women are treated in the industry amid the explosive Harvey Weinstein sex scandal.

Stern's outrageous on-air antics have made him the world's highest paid radio host. He is said to earn $US90million.

Throughout his interview with Bunton he asks intimate questions and makes sleazy comments, all of which appear to make the ex-Spice girl uncomfortable.

At one point, Stern tells Bunton: "You are asking for it and you are going to get it. Robin's [Quivers, Howard's co-host] not here today so I can do you."

Just before this the former America's Got Talent judge had been asking her about her virginity before moving on to her puberty.

He says: "I bet when you were young and you started it with boys, right? You were very well developed.

"What age did you develop? Fourteen? When did you get your period?"

Shocked, Bunton replies: "I'm not telling you that. Absolutely not."

Stern also says: "You've got a hot little body. I could see you girl-on-girl action. I could see you with two guys.

"I could see you doing a lot of things."

The radio host then starts talking about what Bunton is or isn't wearing.

He says: "I feel like you didn't wear a bra just for me today?

"And I feel that you are not wearing panties today. I get that vibe. Am I right?"

"I'm liking it about your panties and no bra. I like it. It's turning me on a little bit," he continues.

"Really. Good. That's nice for you," stammers a clearly stunned Bunton.

"Entertainment industry allows men w/power (like Harvey Weinstein) to treat woman like meat," wrote the Twitter user who re-shared the interview today.

"If this was a 'regular' work situation, he'd be sacked."
