I'll continue with me life story today;
Me catchphrases such as "How's about that guys and gals" and my Tarzan impressions became national institutions and I was widely mimicked.
Then in the 1970s I started a 20-year run as host of Jim'll Fix It, working miracles for more than 1,500 children.
Among me more famous fix-its, was the time when I arranged for an unknown 11-year-old called Nigel Kennedy to perform on television. The youngster went on to become one of the world's most celebrated violinists.
His Radio 1 career saw me presenting 'Jimmy Savile's Old Record Club' for many years, counting down the charts of yesteryear on Sunday lunchtimes.
In the 1970s, I earned another catchphrase "clunk-click, every trip" after fronting a TV campaign to encourage the use of car seat belts.
