Johannesburg – Two celebrities have come forward on Sunday, saying they were also sexually assaulted by Rolf Harris, reports The Guardian.

The 84-year-old Australian entertainer was jailed on Friday for five years and nine months after being convicted of indecent assault against four victims between 1968 and 1986.

According to Irish singer Linda Nolan, 55, Harris kissed and licked her neck in a corridor in Johannesburg in 1975 whilst giving her "a hug". She was 15 years old at the time and on tour with her sisters as the supporting act for Harris.

Television and radio presenter Vanessa Feltz, 52, has also come forward saying Harris groped her on live television while his wife was in the studio. Feltz says she was lying on a bed in a full-length evening dress with Harris sitting very close to her, when she started feeling his hand move up her leg.

The incident happened in May 1996 while interviewing him live for the On The Bed segment of Channel 4's Big Breakfast.
