Peter Kay recalls Jimmy Savile’s creepy encounter with colleague

Peter Kay looks dramatically different in rare public appearance

Peter Kay has lifted the lid on an incident involving Jimmy Savile that caused his colleague to describe him as a “dirty old perve”.

In his new book, TV: Big Adventures on the Small Screen, Peter looks back on his time in the industry.

While the comedian was working on the BBC’s Sunday Show, he decided to invite Jimmy Savile onto the final episode of his Peter Kay’s World Of Entertainment segment.

While Jimmy has since been outed as a predatory sex offender, at the time he was a popular DJ and television personality known for some of the BBC’s biggest shows, including Top of the Pops and Jim’ll Fix It.

According to Peter, Jimmy’s appearance on the show didn’t go as smoothly as expected as he found him to be “very eccentric” and said that he “talked utter nonsense, spouting weird quotes, crap jokes, limericks”.

However, Peter also got to see a hint of Jimmy’s true nature when he acted inappropriately towards one of his female colleagues.

In quotes obtained by the Mirror, he wrote: “The only hint I got of Jimmy being immoral in any way was when he met our executive producer, Bridget Boseley.

“I remember she offered him her hand, which Jimmy took, then he flipped it round to kiss the back of it.

“But before his lips touched her skin I saw a quick flick of his tongue licking the back of her hand.

“Urgh! What was all that about? Bridget and I chatted about it later.

“She said, ‘He licked the back of my hand.’ ‘I know, I saw him, the dirty old perv.’”
