VINCE HILL says he is struggling to believe that his old friend Rolf Harris is a paedophile.
The evergreen singer, who lives in Shiplake, was speaking after the Australian entertainer was convicted of 12 counts of indecent assault on four girls in the Sixties, Seventies and Eighties.
Harris, 84, of Bray, Berkshire, was convicted on Monday at Southwark Crown Court following a six-week trial.
One of his victims was a childhood friend of his daughter and another an autograph hunter aged seven or eight.
An emotional Mr Hill, 80, said Harris would “always be his friend”.
