Vanessa Feltz and Linda Nolan allege Rolf Harris assaults

TV presenter Vanessa Feltz and singer Linda Nolan have both claimed they were sexually assaulted by paedophile Rolf Harris.

Feltz, 52, claimed that the disgraced star, 84, attacked her during a live broadcast on former Channel Four show The Big Breakfast in 1996.

Harris, who was jailed for nearly six years on Friday after being found guilty of sex attacks on girls as young as seven, put his hand inside the elastic of Feltz's knickers, the 52-year-old presenter claimed in the Sunday Express.

"After a few seconds he had managed to get his hand inside the elastic of my knickers and I was absolutely staggered," she said.

In 2012 Feltz wrote an article for the same newspaper titled 'The time I was groped on live TV' in which she discussed being groped live on air by a "powerful and influential" male celebrity.

Feltz told police about the alleged assault, but the judge at Harris' criminal trial ruled the evidence could not be admitted because defence lawyers had not been given enough time to consider it.

Meanwhile, Nolan claimed in the Sunday Mirror that she was groped by Harris when she was 15-years-old in 1975 and on tour with her sisters.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said police did not comment on the identity of alleged victims of sex assaults.
