Ulrika Jonsson reveals vile sex pest Rolf Harris groped her when she was 21
SUN writer Ulrika Jonsson has revealed that pedophile Rolf Harris groped her when she was 21.
Harris, who died earlier this month aged 93, sexually abused the presenter in the 1980s while she was working as a weather presenter.
Ulrika, 55, said Harris pushed her bum during a backstage encounter, which made her “deeply uncomfortable”.
In today’s The Sun column, Ulrika says Harris “didn’t see his actions as wrong” and “felt he had a right to touch and hurt women and girls.”
She said she shook hands with the disgraced entertainer during their encounter, but he “decided to hug me instead.”
Ulrika, who was then working on ITV breakfast show TV-am, said: “I remember finding that either really flattering or a little bit preemptive. In any case, it was confusing.
“Then his hand went to my butt, squeezed it a few times and stayed there for what felt like years, but probably only 30 seconds.
“But it lasted long enough for my 21-year-old self to feel deeply uncomfortable and speechless.
“I know I will not have been the only one who fell victim to his hands. 35 years ago we said nothing.
“We didn’t get in touch or confront anyone. Especially not a celebrity.
“Suffice it to say, if old perverted Harris had touched my butt today, he would have gotten an ankle sandwich.
“I guess we’ll never know exactly how many victims there were.
“Harris was arrogant and thought he was untouchable. Like so many abusers, he never saw his actions as wrong. If anything, he felt he had the right to touch and hurt women and girls.”
It comes after TalkTV host Vanessa Feltz revealed Harris groped her on ‘The Big Breakfast’.
The pervert Harris was sentenced to five years and nine months in prison in 2014 for sexually assaulting four girls and young women.
