Asked whether he has ever abused underage girls, Freddie Starr told ITV News:
"Never. I never have done, I never would do. It's not my style. It's not in me to do that."
"If there's one thing I hate, close to my heart, it's paedophiles. I cannot stand them. And to be accused of this is devastating," he added.
