JIMMY Savile created his TV shows to gain access to children, Mark Williams-Thomas, the child protection expert who helped to expose the late entertainer as a paedophile, has said.

The former police detective has been making a follow-up programme to his original ITV1 documentary into allegations that the star sexually abused
vulnerable teenage girls. He said: “In the previous programme it was unclear what came first. But I can very clearly tell you now that he created his television series as a vehicle for his offending.

“Now we’re able to show that Savile’s offending behaviour spanned four decades and many hundreds of victims.”

Exposure Update, investigates the full extent of the TV star’s four decades of abuse.
