According to the TV channel, the eighty-four-year-old entertainer who was found guilty of offences that took place between 1968 and 1986, was told by the judge he had “no-one to blame but himself”.

Mr Justice Sweeney said Harris had taken advantage of his celebrity status and had shown “no remorse”.

One of the victims said that the abuse had taken away her “childhood innocence”.

Harris’s sentence of five years and nine months has already been referred to the Attorney General’s Office under the “unduly lenient sentence scheme”.

The judge said Harris had “clearly got a thrill from committing some of these offences” against the four girls.
