Jimmy Savile admits sexual advances

Jimmy Savile’s autobiography shock as pages reveal orgies, naked groupies and furious parents

JIMMY Savile admitted to a string of relationships with young women and teenagers in his autobiography Love is an Uphill Thing.

The Daily Record tracked down the only copy of the paperback on sale in the UK to a specialist bookseller in Pitlochry.

Ann Bartle, boss of Glacier Books, in the Perthshire town, parted with the last copy for £4 yesterday.

The late DJ and Jim’ll Fix It host is at the centre of a storm after claims of child abuse and inappropriate behaviour in an ITV documentary last night.

His 184-page book is littered with examples of one night stands and relationships with young women he had during his career.

In one example, Savile – who died last October aged 84 – describes an encounter with a young runaway from a remand home who was being hunted by the police.

He said: “A high-ranking lady police officer came in one night and showed me a picture of an attractive girl who had run away from a remand home.

“‘Ah,’ says I all serious, ‘if she comes in I’ll bring her back tomorrow but I’ll keep her all night first as my reward’.” Savile describes how the girl came to one of his dances that evening and stayed the night with him before he handed her over.

He added: “The officeress was dissuaded from bringing charges against me by her colleagues for it was well known that were I to go, I would probably take half the station with me.”

On another occasion, he asked organisers of a charity event to choose a group of young girls to spend the night camping with him after the disco.

He said: “Six girls were selected and all of them were given matching mini-skirts and white boots. They looked good enough to eat. The first thing was that the father of one of the girls arrived and hauled her off home. She protested loudly but dad would have none of this preposterous situation.”

He describes another encounter with a young girl in his E-type Jaguar on a stormy seafront

Savile explains: “The inside of an E-type is not over capacious and just now seemed to be full of wet body, long black hair, legs and bikini panties.

“Apparently she had been sitting in a car down at the barrier with her parents, seen me go through, jumped out, run along the sea road and here she was.

“Such a start had to mean a good night.” He added: “Should the reader feel that her folks appear unconcerned, you would not believe the stories I might tell you about some parents.”

Savile describes being caught naked in his caravan with another gaggle of young groupies. He wrote: “The heat of the albeit innocent night had caused the girls to shed the majority of their day clothes. In some cases all.

“We all resembled some great human octopus. Again the knock.

“One of the girls rose from the human pile like Venus. Peering out of the curtain she became rigid with fright.

“‘It’s my mother and father,’ she hissed. There was a silent movie pandemonium. Escape was uppermost in my mind but that was impossible.” 

In one of the most telling sections, Savile describes how six groupies once spent the night with him and his minder at a flat.

The following morning, while the DJ was on a bike ride, two of the youngsters’ furious mothers knocked on the door.

Savile claimed his bodyguard hid in the wardrobe while the girls dealt with their parents. He said: “I train my men well and, to date, we have not been found out. Which, after all, is the 11th commandment, is it not?”

The astonishing revelations in the book came as a rape claim made against the eccentric was referred to Scotland Yard. The allegation was reported to Surrey Police and is now being looked at by the Met to see if an investigation will be launched.

Jersey and Surrey police both looked into accusations against the entertainer about abuse in two children’s homes but decided there was not enough evidence to proceed.

In 2007, Surrey Police received an allegation of indecent assault that was alleged to have taken place at a children’s home in Staines during the 1970s.

The force said: “The allegation was investigated and an individual was interviewed under caution.

“The matter was referred to the Crown Prosecution Service, who advised there was insufficient evidence to take any further action.”
