Jim Davidson has said he thinks people were "making allegations for the sake of it" after an police dropped an investigation into sex crimes claims against him.
"I'm just pleased there'll be no further action," he said.
"All I know is allegations were made against me and I literally helped the police with their inquires. I kept on working because I was innocent and that's what I believed from the beginning."
Davidson added: "Allegations are allegations. Anyone can make an allegation and I think the public were slightly aware that people were making allegations for the sake of it."
