Australian-born Harris is currently in jail serving time for 12 sex offences following a trial in 2014.

He was handed a six-year jail term after the string of attacks on girls as young as seven.

At London’s Southwark Crown Court, sentencing judge Mr Justice Sweeney said Harris showed no remorse for his crimes.

He said: ‘’Your reputation lies in ruins, you have been stripped of your honours, but you have no one to blame but yourself.’’

Harris was unanimously found guilty of molesting four girls, including one woman who was just seven or eight at the time and was groped when she asked for his autograph, and another two who fell prey as young teenagers.

The veteran presenter, who charmed television audiences for decades, was also convicted of a catalogue of abuse against another young victim, who prosecutors said Harris groomed from the age of 13 and used like ‘’his little toy’’.

The accusations dated between 1968 and 1986, and the girls were targeted between the ages of seven or eight and 19.

Harris had his CBE annulled at the order of the Queen following his conviction.
