Another light entertainer nicked by Operation Yewtree

Just when you thought that there were no more variety acts left to face child abuse allegations the news arrives of Jimmy Tarbuck being arrested.

North Yorkshire Police this morning have confirmed that a 73 year old man was arrested in Kingston upon Thames on April 26th.

The showbiz legend who has an OBE for services to showbusiness and charity has been released on bail pending further enquiries.

According to the BBC:  “North Yorkshire Police says Mr Tarbuck’s arrest came after information was passed on by Metropolitan Police officers working on Operation Yewtree.

The force stressed that this arrest “is not part of Yewtree, but a separate investigation” by North Yorkshire Police.”

Puts a whole new meaning on Britain’s Got Talent.
