Claims that Freddie Starr allegedly assaulted a teenager in the 1970s are "horrendous" and are making the comedian ill, his fiancée revealed.
Speaking to ITV1's This Morning, Sophie Lea said:
It's absolutely nonsense.
I know Freddie myself, I've known him for a long time before we even got together and when I was working with him on stage never once did he make any advances towards me.
She added that Starr initially took out an injunction because he was told at the "last minute about these allegations":
We never had any time to even think, our heads were absolutely spinning, and it was advised to take out an injunction to stop anything coming out without any proof, without any evidence.
These are allegations, there is no proof whatsoever and Freddie absolutely denies it.
