Victim 1: He violated me in worst way possible
It was meant to be the trip of a lifetime... to see the bright lights of London.
But it turned into a nightmare for a young woman of 20 who claims she was raped by Sir Jimmy Savile.
The Top Of The Pops star invited her and a friend to stay with him at his London council flat. But in the middle of the night, the woman, now in her 60s, claims Jimmy climbed on top of her while she slept and started having sex with her. She woke up suddenly to find him attacking her.
Traumatised by that night in 1965, she hasnít breathed a word of it since. She is not part of the TV documentary but has bravely agreed to speak for the first time about her terrible ordeal to the*Sunday Mirror. The woman, whose *identity we are protecting, said: ďEven now I can still remember Jimmy lying on top of me. He *violated me in the worst way possible and Iíll *never forget it.
ďI was so shocked because the rest of the weekend he had been so friendly and fun. We had gone to the Top Of The Pops studio.
In 1965 Top of the Pops was recorded in a converted church on Dickinson Road, Rusholme Manchester.
The first edition of Top of the Pops was broadcast on New Year's Day 1964 from the studio, and Yorkshire host Jimmy Savile stated: "anything they didn't want to do in London, they slung up into this old church. And, of course, they didn't want anything to do with pop music so that was our place". But when viewing figures took off the BBC decided that the pop show had to be broadcast from London, although it remained based in Manchester for three years before moving to Lime Grove Studios in west London in 1967.
The same thought jumped into my head when reading it.
