Rolf Harris was "a real softy", according to a friend of his daughter Bindi who testified at the entertainer's trial for indecent assault today.
Joanne Charles told Southwark Crown Court that Mr Harris' behaviour had been "affectionate" but not sexual.
"Because I had known him for so long, it was just like having my father put his arms around me and cuddle me," she said.
"He's lovely. He was gentle and kind and a real softy. He was very, very tactile," Ms Charles added.
