Sir Jimmy ‘fit as a fiddle’ after leaving hospital

Have your say

SIR Jimmy Savile has declared himself “fixed” after a 10-day hospital stay.

The 84-year-old, who was admitted to Leeds General Infirmary with a bout of suspected pneumonia, said he was feeling “as fit as a fiddle”.

He said: “I get ill every 10 years and this is one of those times. Before I knew it, I was feeling ropy, then I was in hospital.

“The doctors and nurses were great. But they still don’t really know what was wrong with me – I think it was a foreign virus.”

Sir Jimmy had recently been on a cruise abroad.
