The woman, in her 20s, had drunk “a lot” of wine after enjoying free party drinks and decided to return home around 8.30pm on February 3 this year.

Amanda Hamilton, prosecuting, said the woman remembers Jacobs asking her to show him her breasts during the trip when she pressed the record button on her phone.

During the taping, played in front of jurors at the Inner London Crown Court, Jacobs can be heard saying “You might as well let me fuck you”.

The woman claims she woke up the next morning lying next to a pile of vomit with no memory of opening or closing her front door.

She later told police she remembered a man with a hairy body and a pot belly who pulled a dress over her head and then had sex with her.

Jacobs, who worked as a taxi driver for more than 20 years, denies being raped and claims the woman was flirting and making sexual advances towards him.

He maintains that the woman consented to have sex in his apartment.

Amanda Hamilton, prosecuting, asked Jacobs about his interview with the police during which the officer asked him if he had ever had sex with a passenger before.

Jacobs replied, “Oh man, I don’t know, a few years ago when I first took a cab and [a woman] started talking about Fake Taxis (porn site) where dude picks up women and if they can’t pay cash they have to pay some other way and stuff.

“I didn’t sleep with her but it was like a date, you know what I mean, I’m not proud of that.”

Ms Hamilton asked: ‘So when the officers asked you if you had ever had sex with a passenger you brought in your taxi, you said yes?’

The married father-of-two replied: “I didn’t understand the question, I thought they meant like talking,” Jacobs said, shaking his head.

“I was in a high pressure situation, I thought they were going to investigate the situation,” Jacobs said.

“So this previous encounter was sex chat and not sexual touching anyway?” said Ms. Hamilton.

“Absolutely not,” Jacobs replied.

Jacobs, of Barking, Essex, denies rape.

The trial continues.
