Jimmy Saviles relationship with suspicious mum who feared hed go to prison

Jimmy Savile described his mum as the "only true love of his life", but it is thought the feeling wasn't exactly reciprocated.

Agnes Monica Savile, who the sexual predator called 'The Duchess', shared a flat in Scarborough with him until her death. Despite being the youngest of Anges' seven children, he was never considered the favourite.

And in a chilling interview just three months before he died in October 2011 he said his mum was suspicious of him and feared he might end up in prison. The previously unpublished interview was revealed by the Sunday People in 2016.

Savile said: "My mother never got round to being proud. If anyone said, ‘What is Jimmy like?’ she would say, ‘I don’t know what he’s up to, but he’s up to something’. She never trusted me as she thought I was going to get nicked and end up in the pokey."

This is alluded to in the first episode of the BBC's new Jimmy Savile drama The Reckoning when Agnes visits a confessional booth. She tells the priest: "I don't know if I love my son… I worry there's some terrible darkness in him." The priest then asks: "Has he committed mortal sins?" Agnes answers: "I don't know, but I worry that he has."

Despite this, Savile was always gushing with adoration for his mum. He even spent five days with her corpse in an open coffin after she passed, describing it as "the best five days of my life".

He added in the 2011 interview: "Once upon a time I had to share her with other people. We had marvellous times. When she was dead she was all mine, for me." He also said she was the "only true love of his life, the only woman I ever loved".

He left her bedroom in their shared flat as it was when she died and even had her clothes dry-cleaned every year.
