Rolf Harris groped me all day, says woman

By David Wilcock

Rolf Harris groped a television make-up artist more than "two dozen" times in a single day, a court has heard.

The entertainer repeatedly put his hands inside the freelancer's baggy denim shorts as far as her hips while making a programme in Australia in the mid-1980s, she told his indecent assault trial.

While groping her, Harris even discussed her legs with the programme's male director, who was standing next to them, she told told Southwark Crown Court.

The woman said she later found out Harris' nickname was "the octopus". She said she complained to her supervisor: "That dirty old man groped me all day."

Harris (84) denies 12 counts of indecent assault between 1968 and 1986. The case continues.
