It was sold in 2013 for around £250,000, the Yorkshire Evening Post reported.

Pictures from inside the flat, taken after Savile’s death, reveal a collection of memorabilia.


The flat featured on ‘When Jimmy Met Louis’, a documentary into Savile’s life by filmmaker Louis Theroux.

One year after his death, allegations of abuse emerged prompting the revelation Savile was one of Britain’s most prolific sexual offenders.

He had exploited his celebrity to prey on hundreds of victims, including vulnerable young girls.

Allegations of abuse at the flat have not been proved.

One of the BBC’s biggest stars, Savile fronted programmes including ‘Top Of The Pops’ and ‘Jim’ll Fix It’.
