As soon as they finished shooting a series Brambell was on his way to the flesh pots of the far east.

Bramble was an Irish export that no-one liked to talk about.

Wilfrid Brambell was known to frequent publc toilets looking for 'Action '

Him singing 'A Nation Once Again ' in the Hard Days Night film was funny .

I may be mistaken and there's a BBC doc on the subject which passed me by - can't find a link to it though.

Are you perhaps referring to the 2002 Channel 4 documentary When Steptoe Met Son?

If so, the programme documents Brambell's trips to Hong Kong only - travelling for the purpose of seeking companionship with the English radio presenter Ralph Pixton. There was talk of frequenting gay bars, 'furtively staring at teenage boys on the crowded street', but no evidence of underage sex ever having occured.

This appears little more than baneful conjecture. No reports of any such activities have ever surfaced in the press subsequent to Brambell's death - no complaints, no tell-all memoirs by contemporaries, no red-top revelations etc

Where are you getting Sri Lanka, Thailand and the Philippines from exactly? If this BBC documentary exists and provides evidence as to the veracity of what you've said above, then I'd quite clearly be mistaken.

Given what you've levelled at him, asking for a credible source would seem a reasonable requirement.

I think you should provide one.

Jesus christ.
There's nothing wrong with a boy being devoted to his mother, ye cynic.

Not sure it would class as molestation, but definitely inappropriate behaviour - he was holding onto her a little too tightly.

Regardless of how bat**** crazy Colleen Nolan may now be, nobody, not least a 14yo girl should have to put up with anything like that.
Agreed. I think everyone has experience of a similar type lecherous f**ker. This type of pervert knows exactly how to get his jollys and how to get away with it.

I remember meeting the chap I am referring to for the first time, he was distantly related to my boyfriend, now hubby and the way he hugged me, too f**king close for comfort, left me a little shocked, but being of a forgiving nature I put it down to me being over cautious about people and forgot about it.

Well the next time I had dealings with him was giving him a lift to the pub. He was slightly drunk and full of his loud talk and he thought it was appropriate to put his f**king slimey hand on my knee and have a feel (ok its only a knee but its my knee).

I didnt want to embarrass anyone there and then but when we dropped the slimeball at the pub I told my boyfriend. Obviously he was a shocked as this was a relative and thankfully he took my side.

Anyhow to cut a long story short the creep eventually exposed himself (pardon the pun) at a friends 21st where he tried to feel up a load of fourteen year olds and ended up getting thrown out of the pub.

The moral of my story is that I am not a hysterical person but nobody man or woman has the right to touch me in an unwarrented way and that this f**ker never did anything obvious, for all to see, his modus operandi was the sly grope whenever he could.

this could be of interest

There were newspaper reports that he had spent five days alone in the house with her body after she died, which some saw as unhealthy. Savile told a reporter in 2000 that all he had actually said at the time was that they couldn’t bury her for a while because the ground was too icy. “I said, yeah, I was with her for five days, and that was like manna from heaven for the newspapers. Suddenly, bloody marvellous, you’re sat there like bloody Norman Bates, but that will do. Thank you, good morning.”

Savile continued to live in the house that they shared in Leeds, and kept his mother’s room exactly as it had been, dry cleaning her clothes once a year.

He never married and claimed never even to have spent a whole night with a sexual partner. “My logic has always been to sip at the cup of life and never gulp at it. Now ladies, God bless them. Marvellous. Lovely. If you sip at them. They will enjoy you enormously, you will enjoy them enormously. Then you go to bed on your own and you wake up not disillusioned.”

In the same interview he talked about rumours that he was a little too fond of the children who flocked to him, which Louis Theroux had raised when they made a startlingly intimate documentary together in 1999.

“Yes. Louis raised the subject. 'A lot of people think you’re into little girls,’ he said. 'No, I told him.’ Well, why did they think so? It could be because I know all the pop stars. If a group of girls see me, they will come round to ask me questions about their beloved because they know I’m the fella that’s with them. From an outside point of view, they’ll say, 'Look at them young girls clambering round him’. They’ve got entirely the wrong context."

Benny Hill was devoted to his mum and never married or moved out.

I think Millicent was having a bit of a laugh (and her post is full of lol, imo).
