Actress Julie Fernandez said she was "lucky" that she didn't get any further attention from Jimmy Savile. She added:

"My classmates, we all made a joke of it afterwards for years, but we didn't really bring it up to any adult and I don't know why, actually.

He was a great fundraiser and all of these things, so possibly people didn't want to say negative things about him. Maybe they didn't think they would be believed.

It's a predatory behaviour and it's a bad, bad behaviour. And what's really annoying is, he's now dead and what can we do?"
