The veteran broadcaster, 84, told the court he invited the girl along as company for his daughter Bindi.
He is accused of assaulting the youngster twice, once through a towel on the beach.
Giving evidence he admitted hugging the girl and said: "I'm a very touchy feely person."
But asked if he assaulted her, he replied: "No, that didn't happen."
