Entertainer Freddie Starr has been arrested in the police inquiry into sex abuse claims against Jimmy Savile.

Mr Starr, from Warwickshire, was arrested by Operation Yewtree officers on suspicion of sexual offences and has been taken into police custody locally.

He has denied claims he groped a 14-year-old girl in a BBC dressing room.

Meanwhile, an independent review into BBC Newsnight's dropping of a programme about the allegations against Savile will report later this month.

Operation Yewtree is a Scotland Yard criminal inquiry into sexual abuse claims.

The Metropolitan Police said officers arrested a man in his 60s, from Warwickshire, at 17:45 GMT in connection with the

investigation.


Whose next??

I think we could be in for a few surprises...

Early morning knocks on the door will have a few sweating.

The biggest lie is using the word "entertainer" alongside the name Freddie Starr.

i used to enjoy the routine he did at one or two fa cup finals in the 1980s, when he would walk around the perimeter of the wembley stadium pitch dressed as a nazi.

I'm thinking back over all those Saturday shows like Runaround, Tiswas, Swap Shop, Crackerjack. They seem tainted now

And the media who put the idiot on as pedestal; "Freedie Starr ate my hamster"
He probably has the attention span of a hamster as well , It'd be a tough job interviewing that loon , possibly injurious to your own mental well being .

Yeah, try that now and some 19 year -old, spotty, humourless herbert at the Daily Mail would claim you were a feckin' nazi and demand that you apologise for giving "offence" to a load of people he doesn't know and who couldn't in fact, give a flying f*ck.
Funny old world, innit?.
