Sir Jimmy Savile, born October 31 1926, died October 29 2011

For almost 30 years, as the presenter of Top of the Pops and Jim’ll Fix It, Savile was an ubiquitous and distinctive face on television — an improbable figure with a helmet of platinum hair, dressed in a lurid track suit and bedecked in ostentatious jewelery. As he waggled an outsize cigar, he would utter a series of catch-phrases ("Howzabout that then", "Now then, now then...") which were usually punctuated by a bizarre yodel, and were a gift to even the most limited of television and nightclub impressionists.
