The Australia-born former presenter, 87, has been appearing by videolink at Southwark Crown Court in London.

But Judge Deborah Taylor told the jury today that the defendant would be released from Stafford Prison on Friday and appear in court in person, while on bail, for the remainder of the trial.

The latest trial, which opened on May 15, will not sit on Friday – when the ex-TV star’s release is processed.

He is also alleged to have touched a 13-year-old girl’s breast after filming a children’s TV programme and asked her: “Do you often get molested in a Saturday morning?”

He is separately accused of twice groping a third girl, aged 16, after being paid £100 to appear on ITV celebrity show Star Games in 1978, and telling her she was “a little bit irresistible”, the court heard.

He denies four charges of indecent assault against three women between 1971 and 1983.

 

It is believed the shamed entertainer will spend time with his wife Alwen upon his release, who one source claims is 'in failing health' at 85 years old

Jurors had previously been told Harris had already been convicted and sentenced for other offences in 2014.

Earlier this month a source said Harris was “counting down the days” until his release and would rush to his sick wife’s side.

According to the Daily Mirror, who cited an anonymous source, the presenter is “desperate to get out”.
