Jimmy Savile

Trigger warnings: Sexual assault and sexual abuse

Jimmy Savile was a British DJ, television, and radio personality who hosted many BBC shows, including Top of the Pops and Jim’ll Fix It for decades, making him a household name. He was known for his platinum-dyed hair and, later, his tacky tracksuits and cigars. He was also a well-known good samaritan, raising millions for charities all over the country.

But, after he died in 2011, he was revealed to be one of Britain’s most serious sexual predators. Over several decades he abused almost 600 boys and girls, some as young as 2 years old. He did this in the BBC’s broadcasting studios, 14 hospitals, and 20 children’s hospitals across England.
