DJ Dave Lee Travis has been bailed again by police investigating the Jimmy Savile sex abuse scandal.
The former Radio One presenter denied groping two women in BBC studios when he was held in November and said that in the past, tactile behaviour was regarded as “giving somebody a cuddle”.
Travis, 67, has taken great pains to distance himself from Savile and stressed the allegations against him have “nothing to do with kids” and are not linked to the disgraced TV presenter.
He spoke out in the wake of his arrest to say he had been accused of “squeezing the boobs of a couple of women” – something he vigorously denied.
The DJ – known as DLT – was held at 7.45am on November 15 and later released on bail.
He is alleged to have put his hand up one woman’s skirt and “jiggled” the breasts of another.
The Magic AM presenter was taken off air by the radio station’s owners when the claims emerged.
He was granted bail for a second time today and ordered to return to a police station on an unspecified date in March, Scotland Yard said.
Protesting his innocence outside his home in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire, last year, he said he did not want his name associated with “bloody evil” child abuse.
