A judge today branded former It's a Knockout presenter Stuart Hall's actions a "vile and horrible betrayal" as he was jailed for a further two years and six months.

The 84-year-old, who was convicted by Preston Crown Court of two counts of indecently assaulting an underage girl, was due to be released from prison in September.

But he will now not even be eligible for release until December 2015.

Passing sentence, Lord Justice Turner said: "It was an act of vile bravado and horrible betrayal."
