The pensioner, believed to be an Australian living in Berkshire, is one of 11 people arrested so far under Operation Yewtree – the Met's investigation into alleged offending by the former disc jockey and "others".

A Scotland Yard spokesman said last night that the man, who has not been named, was interviewed under caution on November 29 last year, five days after a search warrant was executed at an address in Berkshire.

He has been bailed to a date in May pending further inquiries.
