Radio DJ Neil Fox has been arrested for the second time in three months over a further three alleged sexual assaults.
The Magic 105.4 presenter, who was born in Harrow, was originally arrested at a business address in central Westminster on September 30 following four allegations of sexual assault against two women. Three of the allegations are historical and one is from earlier this year.
Officers in September then searched his multii-million pound home in Fulham and also in Littlehampton, West Sussex.
Yesterday (December 8) the 53-year-old returned on bail to a central London police station and was arrested for three more sexual assaults involving different women. Two of the alleged assaults are said to have happened in the 1990s and the third in 2007.
Mr Fox, who uses the nicknames Dr Fox and Foxy, told ITV News on Monday: “I’m obviously extremely upset about these allegations. I strenuously deny theses allegations.
“I’ve been with my legal team this afternoon trying to answer the police questions as best we possibly can, of course, and helping them as much as we can.”
He has been bailed to return to the police station in March, 2015.
The DJ started off in local radio and Radio Luxembourg then joined Capital Radio in 1987 where he presented the evening show twice a week and the Saturday morning show.
He soon became one of Capital FM’s most popular DJs and started presenting the Sunday afternoon Network Chart Show in 1993 which became the Pepsi Chart when he also presented a chart show on Channel 5.
He was a judge on Pop Idol and presented other ITV1 shows and left Capital in 2005 after 18 years to go to Magic 105.4 where he presented the breakfast show, Foxy in the Morning, but is not currently hosting it.
Police said the arrest is not part of Operation Yewtree, the high-profile sex crime investigation set up in the wake of revelations about BBC presenter Jimmy Savile.
