Comedian Jim Davidson has been arrested by officers investigating allegations of sexual offences.
Officers from Operation Yewtree arrested him today along with another man whose identity has not been revealed. The Met Police operation was set up following the Jimmy Savile scandal last year.
Jim Davidson’s solicitor Henri Brandman said that the controversial comedian denied the claims which have been made by ‘two women’. Davidson was later bailed by police.
It had been widely reported that he was due to take part in Celebrity Big Brother. A new series gets under way tomorrow evening on Channel 5.
He was due to be reunited with the host of Big Brother, Brian Dowling, who he made homophobic comments to while appearing on ITV’s Hell’s Kitchen in 2007.
