Freddie Starr - Jimmy Savile Scandal: Freddie Starr Accused Of Groping Teen In BBC Dressing Room

Freddie Starr has described Sir Jimmy Savile as “despicable.” The comedian Freddie Starr has been implicated in the latest string of allegations about Jimmy Savile’s sexual abuse against underage girls. Sophie Lea, 34, has waived her right to anonymity and has accused Starr of “groping” her in Jimmy Savile’s BBC dressing room, during the filming of an episode of ‘Clunk Click,’ The Press Association reports. She also claims to have been sexually abused by Savile.

Starr strongly refutes Sophie’s claims, though his initial insistence that he was not even at the recording of the show were proved wrong when Channel 4 News showed him clearly on the show, sitting just a short way from Ms Ward. After that discovery was made, Starr claimed that he could not remember being on the show, because he had been on so many but insists that he would “never ever ever touch an underage girl” and states that he never allowed people into his dressing room. When asked what he thought of Jimmy Savile, Freddie Starr said “I think he's abused his position. Despicable. There's no words to say about what that man's done and the way he conducted himself. That man's disgusting.”

Starr then claimed that he was suffering from palpitations, as a result of the ensuing media storm and was having to go to hospital for a check-up. He described Ms Lea’s claims as “false accusations” and said that he wants to be interviewed by police, to clear his name.
