One of Rolf Harris' victims has told Good Morning Britain she would rather the veteran entertainer apologise for the sexual assault he carried out against her than go to jail.

The woman, who was 14 years old when she was abused, also urged anyone else was attacked by the disgraced TV presenter to come forward.

She also criticised his behaviour in court, which she dubbed "atrocious" and accused him of "living in his own world".

The former Animal Hospital presenter had denied all charges and had even claimed not have attended the "It's A Celebrity Knockout" show that the victim was attacked at.

Harris continued to deny being there until video evidence was played at his trial of him showing him entertaining the crowd.

The victim, who did not want to be identified, was waitressing at the show when Harris approached her.

I would like him to hold his hands up and say sorry. I would actually prefer that more than him going to prison.

I think the fact that he's been found guilty is a very strong message for people and it doesn't matter how long it has been that you can't get away with it.

– Rolf Harris' victim

Harris, 84, was found guilty on 12 counts of indecently assaulting four girls between 1968 and 1986, and will be sentenced on Friday.
