According to CNN, he helped arrange a loan of nearly $1 million for former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. He resigned on Friday after it was reported that he concealed his role in the operation.

Since the loan was taken before he was appointed director of the public broadcaster, he has previously denied any involvement in the incident and the possibility of conflict of interest.

In the weeks before then-prime minister Johnson Sharp was appointed to the role of director of the BBC in 2021, he reportedly acted as an intermediary when Johnson tried to secure a loan. The former banker then faced pressure to resign.
