Ford, who worked with Harris on the popular quiz show, as well as Cat Crazy and Rolf's Amazing World of Animals in the 1990s, said: "Rolf was a total professional. He was a delight to work with and easy to be with."

The 52-year-old, who is married to actor Robert Lindsay, said he had "absolutely never" behaved inappropriately.

"I have obviously been in and around the business a long time and you learn to recognise, in the area I'm from, when people do have a inappropriate manner and I never saw that," she told the court.

"There was never, ever any indication of anything sinister or inappropriate," she added.

Harris denies 12 counts of indecent assault between 1968 and 1986.
