The Australian singer/artist has been accused of indecently assaulting seven people aged between 12 and 27 between 1971 to 2004, according to Britain's Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).

CPS executives reviewed evidence gathered by Britain's Metropolitan Police as part of their Operation Yewtree investigation into sexual abuse allegations, which began with late British DJ Sir Jimmy Savile.

They said in a statement, "Having completed our review in accordance with the Code for Crown Prosecutors, we have concluded that there is sufficient evidence and it is in public interest for Mr Harris to be charged with seven counts of indecent assault."

Harris is set to appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court in London on 17 March (16).
