Funny how young fella me lad can’t be named now but was named when he was arrested for the offence on the 26th May 2012 in the Sun newspaper… Just saying.
In other news, Michael Le Vell AKA Kevin Webster hopes to be back in ‘Corrie’ by Christmas if he is found not guilty… By the same token, so did Peter Adamson AKA Len Fairclough.
Finally, I see Jim Davidson has been charged with more offences. He claims the Old Bill went mental because they didn’t catch Jimmy Savile. That kind of old bollocks may be okay for the UK Zombies, but we here know the real reason Savile was free to do what the fuck he pleased to whoever the fuck he pleased, whenever the fuck he pleased – don’t we?
Therefore Jimmy, that defence for your arrest just doesn’t hold up me old son.

A young television actor accused of sexually assaulting a teenage boy broke down in tears as he gave evidence in court today.
The TV star – who cannot be named because of his age – insisted the sexual activity was consensual, saying, ‘I have never forced him, I have never forced anyone’.
Referring to the first incident between the pair, the defendant told the jury at Blackfriars Crown Court: ‘I was walking down stairs and then he put his hand over my trousers and over my penis area.’
He said that he then performed a sex act on the boy. The defendant said this lasted ‘seconds’.
‘I just remember him saying “it was nice”‘, he added.
He then went on to describe an incident the following day when his girlfriend asked him and the alleged victim to ‘prove it’.
‘She said, “go on, prove it, I don’t believe you”.’
He described another sexual encounter but said he walked out, adding that he was ‘so embarrassed that my girlfriend had seen’.
Ms Khan asked the defendant: ‘Was there ever an occasion when it was against his will?’
He replied: ‘No.’
The jury of seven men and five women have heard prosecution allegations that the actor twice attacked the victim at a theatre, once while his girlfriend was present.
‘I was angry, I was embarrassed, I was upset. I couldn’t believe what he had been saying about me around school.’
It is also alleged that on a third occasion the actor held both the victim’s hands together with just one hand while they were in a toilet at school and performed a sex act on him.
The TV actor denies the charges. A friend of the alleged victim earlier told the court he saw the defendant punch him in the face. He described how the defendant came up to both of them at school in a ‘temper’.
In his police statement, the witness claimed the TV star said to his alleged victim: ‘Everything that we did you wanted to happen too, don’t make it out like you didn’t.’
Giving evidence today, the witness told the court: ‘I couldn’t be 100% sure of the wording but he said something to that effect.
‘He (the defendant) grabbed me on the shoulders to try and get to him (the complainant) behind me. He swung at him and made contact. He hit him in the face.’
Prosecuting, Timothy Forster asked: ‘How hard?’
The witness replied: ‘It was reasonably hard. He had to go away and recover, and he had tears in his eyes.’
The actor told the court he accidentally punched the alleged victim, and was trying to hit his friend.
He put his head in his hands and cried as he relayed the incident in a theatre stairwell, which he insisted was consensual.
After the alleged victim made a complaint about the sexual activity, the defendant was ordered to attend a meeting with his teachers and parents. He told the court he denied taking part in the incidents because he was embarrassed.
‘When it was brought to my mum and dad’s attention I was embarrassed and I couldn’t believe that he told a teacher when he was involved in it,’ he said.
The court heard how rumours circulated around the school about the pair’s sexual activity.
The star said: ‘I was angry, I was embarrassed, I was upset. I couldn’t believe what he had been saying about me around school.’
The court was told about a number of other sexual incidents between the pair in late 2010 and early 2011, one of which lasted for ‘roughly 10 minutes’.
The trial was adjourned until tomorrow.

Michael Le Vell: Coronation Street Kevin Webster actor in court accused of 19 child sex offences
The actor, who plays garage boss Kevin Webster, will appear at Manchester Crown Court today under his real name of Michael Robert Turner
Coronation Street actor Michael Le Vell will make his first appearance in Crown Court today accused of 19 child sex offences.
The star, who has played Corrie garage boss Kevin Webster for 30 years, will appear at Manchester Crown Court under his real name of Michael Robert Turner.
The 48-year-old faces six counts of raping a girl under 16, six counts of indecent assault of a girl under 16 and seven counts of non-penetrative sexual touching of a girl under 13.
The incidents relate to one complainant and allegedly happened between 2001 and 2010.
Le Vell appeared at Manchester Magistrates’ Court last month and is on bail on condition he surrenders his passport, does not contact named witnesses and does not have unsupervised contact with any child under the age of 14.
He has not yet entered a plea but has stated publicly he is innocent and will fight the allegations through the courts.He was initially arrested in September 2011 and questioned over alleged child sex offences. It was later announced that the case had been dropped.
But after a review by the Crown Prosecution Service he was re-arrested and charged earlier this month.
Le Vell, a father of two who split from his wife of 26 years Janette Beverley last year, has denied any wrongdoing.
He recently insisted: “I am innocent of these charges and intend to fight them vigorously.”
ITV has said he will not be appearing in the soap until his trial is over.
Le Vell hopes to be back in Coronation Street by Christmas.
The actor hopes to be back in Coronation Street as Kevin Webster before Christmas if he is found not guilty of the charges, which include child rape and indecent assault.
A source said: “Michael has been told that once the court case is over, if he has been cleared, then he will be back filming on the show as quickly as he wants.
“It’s given him something to focus on and has made him more positive. He has a spring in his step. Ideally, he wants to be back this side of Christmas.”
Le Vell’s trial is expected to last three weeks.
His legal team wanted it to start sooner, pointing to the length of time he has waited for proceedings to begin.
The dad-of-two, appearing under his real name Michael Robert Turner, was first arrested in September 2011 but the matter was later dropped.
In January, prosecutors decided to charge him after reviewing the evidence.

His barrister Alisdair Williamson told Judge Michael Henshell: “Mr Turner has had this hanging over his head for 18 months.”
But the judge rejected the appeal.
Le Vell, who smiled and nodded as he took his seat in the dock, will appear at a hearing in May to enter pleas.
He has insisted he is innocent and has vowed to fight to “vigorously” to clear his name.
Le Vell was bailed on condition that he surrenders his passport, does not contact witnesses and does not have unsupervised contact with any child under the age of 14.
He has been cheered in recent days by support from members of the Corrie cast.
Bosses said he will not be on the show until the trial is over.
Jim Davidson claims police went “mental” because they didn’t catch Jimmy Savile
He told fans at his stand-up gig that police had gone “mental” because they had failed to catch paedophile Jimmy Savile
Comedian Jim Davidson last night said his life had been ruined by his arrests over sex attack allegations.
He told fans at his stand-up gig that police had gone “mental” because they had failed to catch paedophile Jimmy Savile.
Former Big Break star Davidson, 59, said: “These last six months have been the worst of my life. My life has been ruined.
“I just have to keep telling the truth. I have been rearrested.
“You turn up thinking the first two allegations are gonna be dropped and another load of s*** drops on you from 1978.
“I don’t know what I was doing in 1978.”
He also told the audience at his show in Telford, Shropshire: “Do you think police have gone mental?
“I met Jimmy Savile, if he arrived you f****d off, and now the git drops dead and Operation Yewtree decide to prove a point.
“They say ‘we missed Jimmy Savile, now we’re gonna arrest every other f***** that walks the planet’.”
Davidson was first arrested two months ago over claims he molested two women.
The comic was rearrested on Wednesday as he answered bail at a West London police station. He has “vigorously” denied the claims.
His lawyer, Henri Brandman, said the comic had not been charged with an offence, adding: “He answered police questions as fully as he is able.”
The probe was sparked by the Savile scandal but the allegations against Davidson are not linked to the paedophile.
Davidson has been bailed by officers until May.
