Former Miss Battle, Mary Horton, has given her view on the Sir Jimmy Savile abuse claims.
It's alleged the Jim'll Fix It host carried out a series of sexual assaults on underage girls.
The revelations came in an ITV documentary screened last night, titled 'Exposure: The Other Side of Jimmy Savile'.
Mrs Horton met Jimmy Savile a couple of times, during her two stints as Miss Battle, in 1969 and 1972.
The entertainer was Mr Battle on those two occasions.
Mrs Horton said of him, "I've said to my friends for many years that I found Jimmy Savile most peculiar. I thought there may be another side to him, and I'm probably being proved right now."
Jimmy Savile's friends and family have strongly refuted the abuse claims. They believe it is odd that these allegations are coming to light now he is dead, and say if he was still alive, he would vigorously deny them.
