He would have celebrated his 85th birthday on Monday.

Police were called to his home at 1210 on Saturday, where they discovered his body. His death is not being treated as suspicious.

Born in Leeds in 1926, the youngest of seven children, Savile will perhaps be best remembered for the wildly successful 70s TV series 'Jim'll Fix It'.

Thousands upon thousands of children would write into the show in the hope of having their wishes granted.

One of the pioneers of hip hop and dj'ing too...

Who said hip hop belongs to the black community eh?


He was a very odd guy for sure, heard many rumors about him being involved in the masons, and a few other secret societies too.

Aye, he was getting on, Bruce Forsyth will be next, I tells thee.

I remember writing to him (Jimmy) as a kid asking him to fix it for me to be an astronaut and go into space.....I never did get a reply.

RIP Mr Fix-it

For those who don't know who we are talking about (most non-Brits, I would be shocked if any Brits didn't know him):

Yeah he was one of a kind. You just don't get such unique eccentric characters any more.
I remember him as a kid on Jim'll Fix It.

He also raised over £40 million for charity in his lifetime!
"How's about that then, boys and girls!"

RIP

Does anyone remember the Louis Theroux documentary were Savile mentioned being one of the highest members of freemasonry in the UK?

Tell me i didn't dream that?

AND he apparently had a media gagging order against accusations that he was involved in suspicious activities at a certain Jersey care home. One that was rumored to be a haven for paedophile freemasons and child sex abuse- although I am not stating he was any way involved in this, as the SUN newspaper is a vicious rag, but you never know...
