Rolf Harris!? Next up Worzel Gummidge? Saville, ok, before Therouxs doc he was "a little odd", after the doc he was really odd so even though what developed was shocking it still wasn't something that came out of the blue. Rolf Harris on the other hand? Maybe I'm out of touch with the whole entertainment world, but he'd not have even been on any list of possible suspects if you'd asked me. makes you wonder what other names will pop up?
Rolf Harris has been questioned by police over historical allegations of sexual offences.
The 83-year-old entertainer and artist was interviewed under caution after attending police premises in south London by appointment in November.
On 28 March, Mr Harris, from Berkshire, was arrested and bailed until May.
He was held as part of the inquiry set up after claims were made against Jimmy Savile although his arrest is unrelated to the former BBC DJ and TV presenter.
Operation Yewtree was set up following the death of Savile in 2011, when hundreds of sex abuse allegations came to light.
The Metropolitan Police did not name Mr Harris after he was first questioned or following his arrest and have still not formally identified him. He is described by them as Yewtree 5.
