Media outlets had been aware of his identity but for legal reasons only reported that an 82-year-old man had been arrested.
Operation Yewtree has three main lines: 'Savile', 'Savile and others' and 'others'.
After his arrest in March, just days before his 83rd birthday, a Scotland Yard spokesman said: "An 82-year-old man from Berkshire was arrested by officers on Operation Yewtree on suspicion of sexual offences.
"He has been bailed to a date in May pending further inquiries.
"The individual falls under the strand of the investigation we have termed 'others'."
