About Jimmy Savile
Jimmy Savile is an English media personality, charity fundraiser, DJ and TV presenter best known for being the host of Jim’ll Fix It.
James Wilson Vincent Savile was born on October 31, 1926 in Leeds, West Riding of Yorkshire, England, UK. At age 84, he died on October 29, 2011 in England, U.K. In addition to being a media personality, Savile was also known for his support in hospitals and charities. However, after his death, numerous allegations of rape and child abuse became public. This led him to be named as probably one of the most prolific sexual offenders in Britain. As of November 2012, around 450 rape allegations were linked to his name. Around 82% of the cases involved female, and 80% were young people and children during the time of incidents.
A month after the scandal was brought into public, many organizations named after or associated with Jimmy Savile’s name had his name removed or were renamed.
