The entertainer Freddie Starr has strongly denied to ITV News allegations he assaulted a teenager after the recording of one of Sir Jimmy Savile's shows.
He had denied ever being on one of Savile's shows - but footage has since been found showing him on Clunk Click, sitting just inches from Karin Ward, who was 14 at the time of the recording.
Speaking to ITV News, he said:
I don't think that there's any evidence there whatsoever. It's a matter of 'he said, she said.'
What Jimmy Savile is alleged to have done is ...wrong, that's totally wrong.
I do not like being tarred with the same brush as Jimmy Savile or Gary Glitter.
