Sir Jimmy Savile - Sir Jimmy Savile Branded A ‘National Disgrace’

Sir Jimmy Savile has been branded a “national disgrace” by comedian Freddie Starr in light of the recent allegations that the former entertainer and philanthropist sexually abused under-aged girls.

Starr’s statement came after he was accused of joining the late Saville and proven paedophile Gary Glitter in a three-way dressing room attack on a girl during the seventies, with Starr insisting that he had nothing to do with the attacka and that he has never abused a girl in his life. Starr also claimed that he and Savile had never been friends and had only met him on a few occasions. Speaking to The Mirror he insisted: “We moved in different circles, and I never, ever joined them in a BBC dressing room.”

Yesterday, the father of six said that the ordeal he is being dragged into is putting his already deteriorating health at risk, with the comic having undergone a triple bypass in 2010 after suffering a heart attack. Now Starr wants to be distanced as far away from the allegations as possible should his health be risked any further.

Recently, veteran broadcaster Janet Street-Porter admitted that during the 70’s and 80’s Sir Jimmy’s antics were well known throughout the BBC, but the macho presence within the corporation made it nearly impossible for him to face any repercussions.

At the present time, the police are taking the accusations into account but have not yet launched a formal inquiry.
