Disturbing footage has been revealed of Jimmy Savile groping a teenage girl while being filmed for Louis Theroux’s BBC documentary back in 2000.

Theroux saw Savile rubbing himself against her and grabbing her bum, before chatting to her mum at a restaurant in Leeds.

The pair are seen laughing and joking before they leave The Flying Pizza, with the documentary filmmaker describing the disturbing moment as ‘uncomfortable viewing’ and understandably so.

Now, 16 years on, Theroux is releasing another documentary about the former BBC presenter, which airs tomorrow night.

He will be revisiting his time with the infamous paedophile and trying to understand how he, the press, people that Savile worked with, and society as a whole can make sense of their failings and learn from the past.

Louis explains: 

I wanted to make sense of my own failure to see him for what he was, to see what clues there were in hindsight. I wanted to understand how he’d got away with his crimes for so long.

The documentary will see Louis talk to some of Savile’s victims and co-workers, and look back on footage from his original encounter with Savile.

Louis admits he struck up something of a ‘friendship’ with the DJ for several years after the original documentary and feels guilty about two women who contacted him soon after about their underage relationships with Savile.

Louis confessed:

I feel a bit ashamed now – knowing what we know. I knew he had a secret, I just didn’t know what it was. I accept that I was one of many people who failed to see what he was about.
