DJ John Peel reportedly got a 15-year-old schoolgirl pregnant in the summer of 1969.

Following revelations that Jimmy Savile allegedly raped and molested young teenage girls, a woman has now claimed Peel - who was a colleague of Savile at the BBC - had a three-month affair with her when she was 15.

Jane Nevin told the 'Daily Mail' she would go to his London BBC studio or backstage at concerts to "make love".

The paper reports Peel had unprotected sex with the teenager and that they split up when her mother found out about the relationship.

Nevin was then forced to have an abortion after discovering she had become pregnant with the 30-year-old BBC radio host's child.

Meanwhile, it has now been revealed Savile may have abused as many as 25 victims over a 40-year period on a "national scale", according to investigating police.

The number of claims about his alleged abuse of children in his BBC dressing room, at hospitals and schools continues to rise and involves teenage girls as young as 13. Calls have now been made for the BBC to review its guidelines on child protection.
