Sir Cliff Richard has labelled allegations of a historical sexual assault "absurd and untrue", and said he "remains confident" that his name will be cleared.
I have no idea where these absurd and untrue allegations come from. The police have not disclosed details to me. I have never, in my life, assaulted anyone and I remain confident that the truth will prevail.
I have cooperated fully with the police, and will, of course, continue to do so. Beyond stating that the allegations are completely false, it would not be appropriate for me to say anything further until the investigation has concluded, which I hope will be very soon.
In the meantime, I would, again, like to thank everyone for supporting me through this unbelievably difficult period.
