Prolific paedophile BBC entertainer Jimmy Savile raped a 10-year-old-boy after one of his famous performances on Top of the Pops in December 1973 in which he was wearing a “Womble” costume.
While still dressed in his costume, Mr. SaVile, a well connected celebrity paedophile, took the boy to his dressing room accompanied by a 12-year-old girl from Scotland and a celebrity paedophile minder. There, Mr. SaVile raped the boy and sexually assaulted the girl while still dressed as a “Womble from Wimbledon,” with a lookout guarding the door.
The Metro reports:
Savile still had on the Womble costume he had worn to present the show when he raped the boy and sexually assaulted the girl.
Afterwards the presenter put an arm round each of them and told them that what had happened was a ‘secret’.
The victim said she remembers walking to the Tube station and telling her aunt they had seen Slade and had had pop and biscuits with Savile.
The report said: ‘She did not tell anyone what had happened.
‘She thought it was her fault and that she might go to hell for what she had done.’
Savile was a regular visitor to Scotland and owned a cottage in Glencoe which was sold after his death.
The woman came forward after seeing a newspaper advertisement placed by a firm of solicitors, inviting victims of Savile to make contact.
The man who had been in Savile’s dressing room with her had instructed the same firm and one testimony supported the other, with Dame Janet Smith saying ‘I accept their accounts as true’.
The review heard evidence that Savile would on occasion bring an entourage of middle-aged men with him to the studios.
Describing the man who escorted the two children to his room, the report said: ‘If the man with the earring was one of the entourage, it would explain first why a boy of ten and a girl of 12 were let into the studio.
‘Second, if the man with the earring was keeping guard outside the dressing room, the risk which Savile took by behaving as he did with these two children would be much reduced.’
