Jimmy Savile - My Fake Diary

Saturday, 1 September 2012

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.

Can you remember?
