Documentary details Savile claims
Detailed testimonies of women who claim they were sexually abused by British entertainer Sir Jimmy Savile when they were schoolgirls have been broadcast in a television documentary.
A number of alleged victims were interviewed as part of the documentary which was aired last night amid growing allegations against the late Top of the Pops host.
Their historic accounts, which detailed how the presenter allegedly targeted girls in his BBC dressing room and private Rolls Royce, were shown after Surrey police confirmed it had referred a historic rape allegation against the Jim’ll Fix It star to Scotland Yard.
The Surrey force has also confirmed it investigated him over abuse claims in 2007, but dropped the case due to a lack of evidence, while Jersey and Sussex Police said they had both received complaints about the star.
Scotland Yard added last night that it was also assessing a small number of other allegations.
In Exposed: The Other Side of Jimmy Savile, a total of five women claimed they were indecently assaulted by the TV and radio personality when they were schoolgirls in the late 1960s and 1970s.
Two of the alleged victims said they first had sexual relations with the TV and radio personality when they were 15 years old — with a number of the indecent acts taking place in his dressing room at BBC television centre.
The first woman, who did not wish to reveal her identity, said she lost her virginity when she was raped by Savile at the age of 16.
She described how she first met the star a year earlier on the set of Top of the Pops and was invited into his dressing room where Savile touched her “intimately” under her skirt.
“He did it on various occasions in various places - it was always a quick fumble,” she told the programme. “The first question he ever asked me was how old I was so he knew. He was a predator really, a predator on young girls.”
The woman said she was indecently assaulted by Savile “dozens of times” before she was raped in his caravan while it was parked by Kings Cross station in London.
She added: “As a mature woman now I look back and think it was rape on the first occasion as I didn't know we were going to have full sex and I said we were not going to go all the way.”
The second woman met Savile, who raised an estimated £40 million for good causes, in 1968 when she was 15. She claimed the star had full sex with her for the first time in a London hotel.
