MTV has suspended its reality television series Catfish as executive producer and host Nev Schulman faces allegations of sexual misconduct.

The 33-year-old is currently being investigated after a former guest posted two YouTube videos in which she claims she was sexually harassed by Schulman, who she refers to as ‘Jack’, during her time on the show.

Uploaded earlier this week, the videos see Ayissha Morgan, who appeared on Catfish in 2015 and identifies as a lesbian, alleging Schulman repeatedly asked her about her sexual orientation, continually came onto her and forced her to have sex with him.

Morgan also claims a female production assistant, who she refers to as ‘Carol’, get her drunk to take advantage of her.

In a statement provided to The Daily Beast, a MTV spokesperson confirmed the show had been suspended while the investigation continues:

We take these allegations very seriously. We’re working with Critical Content, our third party production company, to conduct a thorough investigation, and we’ve put a pause on shooting until the investigation is completed
