Jimmy Savile's remarks when he was in Big Brother house will never be televised again

Jimmy Savile's remarks when he was in Big Brother house will never be televised again

The late sex offender appeared on the Channel 4 reality show in 2006

When radio presenter Jimmy Savile appeared in the Big Brother house 18 years ago, the nation had no idea that he'd soon be exposed as one of the most prolific celebrity child sex offenders in history.

In fact, it wasn't until he died five years later that his heinous crimes against some of the most innocent members of society finally came to light.

Hundreds of horrific abuse allegations then came to light - the majority of instances of which were sadly endured by children and teenagers - and since then, several documentaries highlighting his crimes have been produced.

Documentarian Louis Theroux launched an investigation into how Savile managed to 'hide in plain sight' for over 50 years, before Netflix produced a heart-wrenching mini series on the matter.

The BBC last year commissioned a drama retelling of his life and crimes titled The Reckoning, starring actor Steve Coogan, which saw some of his most villainous moments re-enacted.

And this week - as the ongoing series of the star-studded reality show continues following a brief hiatus - a series of crude comments that the late paedophile made whilst in the famous on-screen house have resurfaced 13 years after his death, leaving viewers sick to their stomachs.

Leeds-born DJ Jimmy appeared on the show for a period of two days under the guise of helping celebrity contestants fix items in the house - a nod to his own television series Jim'll Fix It.

Upon strolling into the house, he offered out hugs and kisses to his co-stars.

After telling ex basketball player Dennis Rodman: "I want you to know I have a violent temper but you have nothing to fear from me," he moved onto the ladies of the group.

Hugging Coronation Street star Rula Lenska, he eerily said: "I would want to marry all of you ladies for at least 24 hours."

He later told her she looked 'far prettier' than she does on TV 'in the flesh'.

Next, meeting Chantelle Houghton, he told her: "I know that many fellas love you, but they don't love you with the sincerity and tenderness I do," before kissing her hand and adding: "I always tell the truth even when I'm lying."

And later in the show, he jestingly told his house-mates in a statement that would come back to haunt viewers: "Don't forget ladies, I'm available most weekends for home visits."
