Comedian Jim Davidson denies fresh sex allegations

Comedian Jim Davidson answered bail on Wednesday after he was held in January by detectives working on Operation Yewtree

Comedian Jim Davidson "vigorously denies" allegations made against him, his solicitor said last night following the star's re-arrest for further alleged sex offences.

The 59-year-old answered bail yesterday.

His solicitor Henri Brandman said: "Jim vigorously denies the allegations. He has not been charged with any offence. Neither he nor I will be making a further comment."

The former Big Break and Generation Game host answered bail yesterday after he was held in January by detectives working on Operation Yewtree, the national investigation prompted by the Jimmy Savile sex abuse scandal.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said a 59-year-old man had been "further arrested on suspicion of sexual offences in connection with further allegations made to Operation Yewtree".

He and a 53-year-old man were arrested in January. They both answered bail yesterday and have again been bailed until May.
