Jimmy Savile's victims also include parents, friends and health professional traumatised by guilt about exposing children to a serial abuser in what should have been the safest of environments, a charity has said.
Victim Support said it has been helping Savile's direct victims but also those closest to them, who are often troubled by the thought that they were duped by the broadcaster's celebrity status.
"There are other people, friends and family members who are victims in this as well and are going through a number of feelings," said Lesley McLean, the charity's divisional manager for West Yorkshire.
"For example, if they introduced their child, who's in hospital, vulnerable, to Jimmy Savile thinking that this might be a nice treat for them while they're in hospital.
"Then the guilt those people have experienced about putting their children through that is huge."
Mrs McLean said: "I think we do need to recognise that there's a lot of people out there that have some form of guilt about what they may see as contributing towards that abuse in some way, and that is absolutely not the case. This was a very manipulative man who knew exactly what he was doing and took advantage of his celebrity status and his standing certainly within the local community within Leeds to groom and abuse these young people."
Mrs McLean said Victim Support has had a close involvement into the inquiry into Savile's activities at Leeds General Infirmary.
She said the charity had a representative on the oversight panel to make sure victims were central to everything the inquiry did. And, she said, a specially trained team of volunteers provided support to those who came forward.
"I think they (victims) feel that having us on board and working alongside them has actually made it slightly easier, hopefully, for victims who are having to go through this additional trauma," she said.
Mrs McLean said the scale of Savile's abuse is unprecedented but the publicity surrounding his crimes has led to a shift in people's attitude to reporting abuse.
"I would hope that if anything comes out of the horrendous things we've heard over the last two years, not just about Savile but about other people as well, my ideal would be that if nothing else, people feel more confident about coming forward - either for support or to report anything that they've not reported before," she said.
"If we can see anything coming out of this situation it's that people feel able to come forward and approach somebody for support."
Ms McLean said: "He was a huge celebrity for decades and particularly well known in Leeds.
"He was known for working with children and for supporting charities. So for a child to try and make an allegation against somebody that is seen as so big in the local community, it's very, very difficult."
She said: "I've worked around the field of rape and sexual assault for the last 25 years. I've certainly never experienced anything like this. It was like a dam bursting, something came out and then, suddenly, there was so much more coming out. And so many other celebrities being accused as well."
