A 59-year-old man was arrested this morning by Operation Yewtree. According to local news agency INS, this afternoon police are gathering evidence outside 59-year-old TV presenter Jim Davidson’s house.
In October Davidson wrote on his blog:
“The Savile witch hunt is going a bit silly now. We all are starting to speculate and accuse … even in jest. So no, I don’t know who’s next. Well, if I was in the pub with the lads it would be a different story. Everyone has had the nod. Everyone is an expert. Just pick someone you don’t like and say it’s them.”
“I read a thing today where someone saw Jimmy Savile pinch some girl’s bum. Apparently, that’s sexual assault. Where will all this end? As odd as he was, Savile can’t defend himself. The bloke’s dead for God’s sake. Let’s move on.”
Davidson is rumoured to be going into the house for the latest series of Celebrity Big Brother, starting tomorrow evening…
UPDATE: Confirmed: Jim Davidson was arrested this afternoon at a West London police station.
