It is understood that a number of other schoolboys have now come forward to claim they also had sexual relations with the school mistress and more are also expected to follow.

TimesLIVE have reported that over FORTY boys are to be interviewed by an attorney who has been appointed by the church school to investigate the lurid allegations against the teacher.

Raunchy videos and topless and naked photographs that the teacher is alleged to have sent by Whats App to the boys have set social media alight and have begun to appear on porn sites.

Recently married Fiona who taught history and water polo to the boys at Bishops Diocesan College in Cape Town was forced to quit her job after the parents of the boy complained.

Shocked husband Pavo Viotti, 32, who has a top venture capital and private equity company in Cape Town is said to have separated from his wife of 13 months over the scandal.

It is alleged that the 18-year-old sixth form pupil was involved in an intense sexual relationship with the stunning school mistress but when he tried to end the affair she refused to accept.

The IOL news website said a parent revealed that the pupil had begun a completely consensual sexual relationship with busty Fiona but then blew the whistle when she would not end it.

The parent told IOL: “He was a willing participant in the beginning but became a victim when he couldn’t get out of it.

“The teacher started texting him to come to her house on the campus and that’s how it started but it got to the stage where he had had enough.

“But the teacher wouldn’t let him go and he went to his parents for help and they went to the headmaster and now it is all coming out”.

Several sources including one close to the pupil involved claim the 18-year-old was not the teacher’s only sexual conquest by far adding: “It seems this has been going on for about six years.

“That is why the headmaster is asking for other boys past and present to come forward with information. If the rumours at the school are correct there could be many many more involved”.

The South African Police Service have not been involved as criminal charges have not been laid as the schoolboy is two years over the age of consent and no laws seem to have been broken.

A school source said: “It would appear this is not a criminal matter but one of gross misconduct between a teacher who has stepped over a clear line and it is a matter for the school to handle.

“They have appointed a senior lawyer who is independent of the school to ensure the matter is investigated properly”.

School principal Guy Pearson admitted to the sex scandal rocking the elite schooll in a statement saying: “We can confirm that there have been several boys who have been affected over a number of years.

“The investigation into the serious sexual misconduct of one of our female teachers is ongoing and we have appealed to boys and parents for any information that will add to our understanding.

“We understand there will be lots of questions but please appreciate this is a matter which needs to be managed with the utmost sensitivity and I cannot share more information at this stage”.

The school also revealed that it has made a team of psychologists and psychiatrists available to any boy or family member that may have been affected by the events surrounding the teacher.

The teacher’s uncle Nick Mallett , 62, was a former Springbok who played at No 8 and who went on to coach rugby for South Africa and Italy and who is now a Supersport TV rugby commentator.

The disgraced teacher’s father Dave Mallett is also a history teacher at the same Christian church school and coaches the rugby !st XV and her grandfather Anthony was a former headmaster. for 18 years.

English born housemaster Dave has sent a message to parents saying his family faced “tough times ahead”.

The devastated dad said: “Thanks very much for the messages of support that we have received in the wave of the devastating events involving my daughter Fi and our family as a whole.

“Tough times ahead no doubt – but I’ll be soldiering on to support my family as best I can.

“Obviously Fiona’s health and safety is our priority right now and we will be doing all we can to help her pull this through” he said.

One of the videos posted on social media shows married Fiona lying on her back masturbating herself with her left hand down her knickers whilst topless but her face is unseen.

Another shows the voluptuous teacher lying on her back in sexy black lingerie slowly teasing her knickers down.  In both videos her distinctive rings on her left hand can clearly be seen.

The under-fire teacher’s lawyer William Booth has not denied it is Fiona in the videos but has warned they were posted without her permission and that forwarding them on would be illegal.

He further said he is taking action to have the videos which have been uploaded to porn websites taken down and said that legal action may be taken against those people who uploaded them.

Bishop’s Diocesan College is a private school founded in 1849 by Bishop Robert Gray to teach Christian values and educate the sons of colonialists in Cape Town and costs £15,000 a year to attend.

Former pupils include astronaut Mark Shuttleworth and South African cricket star Herschelle Gibbs.

Stunning Fiona is a former model and was a water polo star as a teenager and was one of the “Beauties of Sport” featured in Sports Illustrated in 2009 – a year after she met her future husband.

The couple fell in love in 2008 while backpacking in Vail, Colorado, in 2008 and their adventures took them to South America, Europe and South East Asia before they returned together to Cape Town.

They were married in September last year in a white wedding in Plettenberg Bay and seemed the perfect couple and were planning a family together until the church school scandal hit the news.

Teacher Fiona has also resigned her job coaching the Western Province Under 19’s schools water polo boys team and is believed to be in hiding with her parents at their home in Cape Town.

Husband Pavo has refused to comment or answer the door at their £350,000 home in a Cape Town suburb.

Both have deleted all their social media accounts and close friends say they are living apart at the moment.

Teacher Fiona’s lawyer William Booth confirmed an explicit video had been removed from a porn site although it is understood that the same video and others have appeared on other porn sites.

All the videos appear under the name Fiona Viotti and no denial has been made that the videos are of of her.

Mr Booth told News24: “We are quite happy that one video has been officially removed and that is positive. However we are continuing with our investigations to establish who posted it without consent.

“We want to know how it got there and who by and at the moment we are waiting for the school to finish its investigation and asking everybody to respect my client and her family members’ rights”

South African media has widely publicised the link between the former Springbok coach Nick Mallet and his niece and no denials have been made that any photos or videos posted are not of Fiona.

A former schoolboy at Bishops Diocesan College who was taught water polo by the school mistress said: “Every red blooded male at the school was besotted with Fiona as she looked like a supermodel.

“But the thing was she was never flirty and comes across as a very shy and innocent and very nice girl and to hear these allegations has just blown me and a lot of the guys I went to school with away.

“Fiona’s uncle Nick was the Springboks coach and her dad Dave coaches the rugby 1st XV and her grandfather Tony was headmaster here for nearly 20 years after he emigrated here from England.


“The Mallet’s are part of the fabric of the recent history of Bishops and I cannot believe Fiona of all people has been having sex with her pupils as she is the total opposite of the sort of person you would suspect.

“The word is that there is a lot more to come out and former pupils who left the school years ago are being contacted.  It is a great school and one of the best in South Africa and you just don’t expect this” he said.
