Rolf Harris has denied indecently assaulting a young girl while on a family holiday in Hawaii in the seventies.
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."
