Peter Kay recalls creepy encounter with Jimmy Savile when paedophile licked startled female TV executive on set
Peter Kay has recalled a creepy encounter he had with Britain’s worst paedophile Jimmy Savile while working on the BBC Series The Sunday Show.
Recollecting the incident in his new book, Kay said he had invited the disgraced comic onto his last episode of Peter Kay’s World of Entertainment segment, who agreed to appear if he was handed over £500 in cash and given a box of cigars with £1000.
He described Savile as a ‘very eccentric’ man who ‘talked utter nonsense’, ‘spouted crap jokes’, and made weird noises.
At this point, details had not yet emerged of the prolific child abuse committed by Savile.
Kay has told of how he only had ‘a hint of Jimmy being immoral in any way’ was when he was introduced to the show’s executive producer Bridget Boseley.

Kay described a creepy encounter with Savile when he was introduced to the show’s executive producer Bridget Boseley (pictured) and licked her hand
‘I remember she offered him her hand, which Jimmy took, then he flipped it round to kiss the back of it, but before his lips touched her skin I saw a quick flick of his tongue licking the back of her hand.’
Afterwards Ms Boseley told Key of the uncomfortable interaction, to which he replied: ‘I know, I saw him, the dirty old perv,’ the Mirror quoted from Kay’s book Big Adventures on the Small Screen.
Five years after his death in 2011 it was revealed that Savile, who was one of Britain’s biggest television stars, molested at least 72 children, some as young as eight, over a four-decade campaign of abuse.
In his final years there was growing speculation about his illegal exploits, but the extent of his abuse did not come to light until after his death.
Savile’s horrific reign of abuse dated back to 1959 when he raped a 13-year-old girl, before attacks followed ‘in the corridors, canteens, staircases and dressing rooms of every BBC premises’.
Other vile crimes exposed included the rape of both a virgin teenager in a hotel and a 15-year-old work experience girl he met in the BBC canteen over a cup of tea.
Twenty one of Savile’s female victims were aged 15 or younger, the youngest being eight, while young boys – including an eight-year-old – were also preyed on.

Kay appeared alongside Savile in the (Is This The Way To) Amarillo music video back in 2005 to raise money for charity.
Telling a stand-up audience last year, Kay said: ‘Very popular at kids parties. Number one for seven weeks, biggest-selling song of that year and now thanks to Jimmy Savile it’s on YouTube with a paedophile warning.
‘Thanks for that Jimmy… dirty s***house.’
Kay also told of how he was asked to use Children in Need Pudsey Bear stickers to cover up Savile’s face in pictures on the wall at BBC Media City in Salford.
‘I’ll never forget Peter Salmon (BBC executive), he said… ‘Could you find Savile and cover him up?’ So there we were, up step ladders trying to find every image of Jimmy Savile so we could cover him up (ironically just what the BBC had reportedly been doing for years). It was like some depraved Where’s Wally? Or Where’s Jimmy?’
In 2018 Kay slammed the prolific paedophile at a stand-up show.
Before fans at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool, Lancashire, he brought up Savile’s children’s TV show Jim’ll Fix It and repeated his once popular catchphrase, ‘now then, now then’, before saying: ‘I’d like to say we forgive you, but we don’t.’
