Scotland Yard is currently leading a nationwide investigation into allegations against Savile and a number of other high profile individuals.
The inquiry has been divided into three strands: claims against Savile, those involving Savile, and those involving other individuals.
Officers have questioned a number of people as part of the investigation including PR guru Max Clifford, comedian Freddie Starr and disgraced pop star Gary Glitter.
Over 580 people have come forward with information relating to the scandal, with a total of 450 complaints having been made about Jimmy Savile.
