SirJimmy Savile's's family have been left disgusted by recent accusations that the late DJ and club promoter indulged in sexually abusing underage girls. A documentary to be aired on UK network ITV later this week alleges that the hitherto well-loved personality abused girls going as far back as the 1970s, the acts taking place either in his famous Rolls Royce, or at BBC TV Centre.

However, speaking to the Daily Telegraph, Savile's nephew Roger Foster has lept to the defence of his uncle, who died last year aged 84. ''I just get so disgusted and disappointed by it. The guy hasn't been dead for a year yet and they're bringing these stories out" lambasted Foster, who also claimed that such muck spreading could affect charities set up or contributed to by the late DJ.''It could affect his legacy, his charity work, everything" Foster continued, adding ''I'm very sad and disgusted. I just don't understand the motives behind this. 'I just think it's very, very sad you can say these things after someone's died and the law says you can't defend yourself when you're dead.''

For their part, the BBC have released a statement that they've no wrongdoing on Savile's part during the time he was employed by them. "The BBC has conducted extensive searches of its files to establish whether there is any record of misconduct or allegations of misconduct by Sir Jimmy Savile during his time at the BBC. No such evidence has been found" the statement read.
