Describing how he allegedly performed a sex act on her, she said: "He didn't feel inhibited, I think he got a thrill out of it".

Asked why she thought this, she added: "By the look on his face, looking over at Bindi and just carrying on."

The 84-year-old entertainer denies 12 counts of indecent assault between 1968 and 1986.
