The daughter of ROLF Harris writes a book that defends the monster as a “flirt,” according to reports.
Bindi Nicholls, 54, is said to be hoping to make her story known in a book titled Living With A Pervert according to The Sun.
Dishonored entertainer Harris was sentenced to five years in prison in 2014 for abusing four female victims in the 70s and 80s, including the childhood friend of his daughter Bindi.
During the trial, the court heard allegations that Harris had molested Bindi’s boyfriend while his daughter slept in the same room.
It was also claimed that he mistreated one girl on stage and another sex act while on the M4.
Bindi was known to write a book defending her father’s reputation in the aftermath of his conviction. Now The Daily Star claims to have seen notes of the upcoming work with details about Harris’s attitude to sex, and what she said were weaknesses in the prosecutor’s case against him.
The newspaper claims that Bindi says: ‘Dad is the age of Benny Hill, Carry On films.
“He likes a flirt, which he does very openly, to my shame, but I have met so many men from my father’s generation.
“It’s harmless and you know it doesn’t lead to anything.”
The Daily Star also claimed that Bindi’s account could be published as a “viral email or blog” instead of a book.
It is not known when the work will be published.
Harris, 88, was released from prison in May 2017 after serving nearly three years in Stafford Prison.
The Australian-born entertainer was arrested as part of Operation Yewtree, which investigated sexual abuse claims against former BBC presenter Jimmy Savile and other media figures.
Since his release, Harris has spent most of his time caring for his wife, Alwen, who is said to be sick. The couple have been married for 60 years.
After his conviction, he received a wide range of awards, including his CBE and MBE, as well as honorary degrees from the University of East London and Liverpool Hope University.
Child abuse advocates were frustrated when the news about Bindi’s book first broke in 2015.
Peter Saunders, from the National Association for People Abused in Childhood, said, “It’s disappointing.”
