So:

  • Kiddly fiddler?

Dead person ≠ lawsuit shirley.

Colleen Nolan did actually appear with him when he was a guest on Loose Women a few months back. Not awkward at all.

she probably figured that she's safe now she's no longer 14

He was a Mensa member and had an IQ of 149.

What about that video in which Auberon Waugh denounces Sir Jimmy? (Or am I misremembering)

Something very wrong with Jimmy Savile.

My ex was a nurse at Leeds General, and lived in Roundhay not far from him. She said the rumours about him and cadavers were rife, and nobody trusted him. He worked as a porter (voluntary) but he gave everyone the creeps.

I spent one boring day on a train with him up to Glasgow and back filming a BR ad back in the 80s. He was someone who couldn't hold a conversation at all. All he did was talk: either about himself, or make some naff joke. What a tedious, tedious old twat he was.

Narcissist, too close to his mother, worked around dead bodies and children, never married (or had a lover), kept a shrine to his mother (had all her clothes dry cleaned once a year for Chrissakes!)...AND a disc jockey.

One of the weirdest fuckers ever to make it onto the telly.

Everyone has a sexual outlet. I dread to think what his must have been.

Looking forward to the TV film of his life. My bet is it'll outshine Kenneth Williams and Frankie Howard as all the dirt comes out at last...

He claimed to have invented the disco.
