HATS of to the Sun for its front-page report on Dave Lee Travis. It’s a great headline.

The former BBC Radio 1 DJ has been found guilty of groping a TV researcher’s breasts almost 20 years ago.

Travis, 69, was breakfast radio’s The Hairy Cornflake. Soon he’ll be wondering if that’s a hairy cornflake in his morning slops or a just a raw scab. He was…

…found guilty of groping a 20-year-old TV researcher on the Mrs Merton Show in January 1995.

The Sun hears not form the proven victim, rather from one Jayne Bird, now 46, who claims that when she was 18 DLT “pressed her against his car and grabbed her breasts when she agreed to help him carry his bags after watching him in a pantomime”.

Bird tells the paper:

“He should definitely go to prison. He can’t be allowed to get away with it. It’s sad because of his age — but he did what he did and you can’t get away with these things for ever. It’s always going to catch up with you sooner or later. He has this way about him like he’s a friendly grandad and you feel you’ll be safe with him. But then he turned into this pervert. He deserves everything he gets.”


“I remember his big beard pressing against my face. I can’t stand beards now.”

And she asks:

“Even though I just left school and was young and naïve I could sense there was something pervy about him. Who gropes someone they’ve only just met?”
