Personal Quote:

[on Jimmy Savile] He raised huge sums of money for charity. He did a great deal. I never did the marathon which he did, but I know people who did. He was exactly off screen as he appeared on screen: eccentric, idiosyncratic, he was a one-off, he was his own invention, with the cigar, the shiny shell-suits. When we met he'd kiss my hand, not many people do that. See more »
