Sir Paul McCartney has opened up about The Beatles' connection to Sir Jimmy Savile, insisting the band "always thought there was something a little bit suspect" about the shamed British Tv star.

Savile, who died last year (11), became headline news in Britain in September (12) when a number of women came forward alleging he had molested them when they were young girls.

He is suspected of abusing more than 300 children over a period of 40 years and police have launched an investigation.
