Freddie Starr in walkout during TV interview

By David Mercer

Freddie Starr has stormed out of a television interview about his sex abuse claims ordeal.

The comedian also branded disgraced publicist Max Clifford "a different animal".

Starr ordered Good Morning Britain presenter Susanna Reid to leave his home after she asked whether he had done "anything that could have been misinterpreted" in his past relationships.

"Are you being serious?", Starr replied, before removing his microphone and walking out of the room.

The veteran comic, who learnt last week he will not be prosecuted over sex allegations after spending 18 months on bail, later returned with his wife Sophie to continue the interview.

"It's hard to have an interview like this with it being so raw," Starr told the programme.

"I've only been released three days ago, I'm just catching up on my sleep."

During the interview, Starr claims that he did not know the women who made the complaints against him, branding them "ghosts".
