Jimmy Savile - Abuse Allegations Disgust Jimmy Savile's Nephew

The nephew of the late broadcaster Sir Jimmy Savile has spoken to The Telegraph, and is ''disgusted and disappointed'' that allegations his uncle sexually abused school girls have been made.

“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,” explained Roger Foster. “It could affect his legacy, his charity work, everything. I'm very sad and disgusted,” he continued. One of Mr Foster’s biggest grievances is Savile’s inability to defend himself under these claims. ''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.'' Sir Jimmy, who was famous for TV shows like Jim'll Fix It and Top Of The Pops as well as being a DJ on Radio One, died at his home in Leeds on October 29 last year, aged 84. His knighthood, which offers up the prefix of ‘Sir’ to his name, is now in jeopardy amidst these fresh claims. Given Mr Foster’s public words on the matters, he will be under intense scrutiny should a judicial case ensue, and the allegations prove to be founded in truth.

Exposure: The Other Side Of Jimmy Savile was shown on ITV1 last Wednesday (October , and given the BBC’s recent shelving of their own Savile documentary, millions are expected to tune in.
