Freddie Starr - 'I'm No Sex Pest': Freddie Starr Unable To Be Alone With HIs Children

Freddie Starr has told The Daily Mirror that he has been left feeling suicidal after his connection to the Jimmy Savile sex scandal has resulted in him being unable to spend time alone with his own children.

Karin Ward, 52, told police that she was groped by Starr in Savile’s BBC dressing room, in 1974, when she was just 14. Freddie was arrested just days after Gary Glitter was also hauled in by police, on similar grounds.

Talking to the British newspaper, Freddie continued to protest his innocence and said “My life is ruined. I feel so desperate at times I want to go and end it all. It’s heartbreaking because I’m totally innocent. It makes me feel suicidal. I don’t think I can ever work again – how can I put a comedy face on after this?” The 69 year-old comedian is described as looking “dishevelled.” Starr currently lives with his 34 year-old fiancée, Sophie and their two young children, in Studley, Warwickshire but if Sophie has to go out, Freddie is not allowed to be left alone with them.

“I’m no sex pest,” Freddie insists. “But right now I can only have supervised contact with my kids. If Sophie goes out I can’t be left alone with them in my own house. The way I’m being treated is humiliating. The kids are suffering too.” The children in question are his 12 year–old daughter from a previous relationship and Sophie’s 12 year old son. No charges have currently been brought against Starr but Warwickshire county council confirmed that they have a ‘working agreement’ with Freddie, owing to the nature of the claims brought against him.
