86 year old entertainer Rolf Harris, from Bray in Berkshire, has been released from Stafford Prison, prison staff have confirmed.
The Australian-born TV personality has been appearing at his indecent assault trial at Southwark Crown Court via video link from the prison.
But Judge Deborah Taylor told the jury that the 87-year-old would be able to appear in person for the remainder of the trial.
He is facing trial on four sex offence charges, involving the indecent assault of three teenage girls in the 1970s and 1980s.
One of the counts centres on allegations that he touched a 13-year-old girl's breast after filming a children's TV programme and asked her: "Do you often get molested on a Saturday morning?"
He is also accused of twice groping a third girl, aged 16, after being paid £100 to appear on ITV celebrity show Star Games - telling her she was "a little bit irresistible", the court heard.
The jury has previously been told that Harris had already been convicted and sentenced for other offences in 2014.
He denies all four charges of indecent assault. The trial continues.
Disgraced former children's entertainer Rolf Harris has been stripped of his CBE, according to an official announcement in the London Gazette.
The Berkshire entertainer is serving a jail sentence for indecent assault.
Rolf Harris is tonight in jail - sentenced to five years and nine months for assaults against young girls - one when she was just seven or eight.
The entertainer had left his home, in Bray, in Berkshire, on a boat on the River Thames to avoid the press, as he headed to court for sentencing.
He was found guilty of crimes between 1968 and 1986. One of his victims said he'd taken her childhood innocence.
Tonight, there are calls for his sentence to be increased. His case has been referred to the Attorney General for being "too lenient". Andrew Pate reports on the day's events.

The barrister for Rolf Harris has told the court that with the exception of one of his victims the offences were "brief" and that they were "opportunistic rather than predatory."
Sonia Woodley QC said that there was no evidence that he had committed any inappropriate sexual behaviour for the last 20 years.
The court was told that three large files of letters and two bags of cards had been received from well-wisher's since his conviction offering him support.
She also that he was 84 and "already on borrowed time" she said "everyday in prison is going to shorten his life".
Court was also told that impact on his frail and ill wife, Alwen, would be severe if he was sent to jail. He had been her main carer and had looked after her with "love and devotion".
She asked that he be given "some hope for the future that he will be able to spend some of his twilight years with his family."
Rolf Harris will be sentenced as soon as possible after midday, Mr Justice Sweeney said.
Victim impact statements and mitigating arguments were heard in court this morning ahead of sentencing.
