HIGNFY Outtake. Hislop & Merton Expose Jimmy Savile

UPDATE – 4th October 2012.  With all the people coming forward and alleging that Savile raped or molested them, there is little doubt as to what he was.  What is not coming out is the much bigger story that he was a procurer.  He supplied vulnerable kids to Prime Ministers, and was also a regular and welcome visitor at The Palace.  No wonder they’re running media stories/reports to draw peoples’ attention away from the role that Jimmy Savile played as a procurer of children for sexual abuse by others, and focus on the obvious and well known fact that he was an abuser in his own right.

During the headline round:

DEAYTON: You used to be a wrestler didn’t you?
SAVILE: I still am.
DEAYTON: Are you?
SAVILE: I’m feared in every girls’ school in the country.
(Audience laugh)
DEAYTON: Yeah, I’ve heard about that.
SAVILE: What have you heard?
MERTON: Something about a cunt with a rancid, pus-filled cock.
(Huge audience laugh; Awkward pause)
SAVILE: I advise you to wash your mouth out, my friend…
MERTON: That’s what she had to do! (Audience laughs)
HISLOP: Weren’t you leaving money in phone boxes or something?
(Saville glares at him) Or have I got completely the wrong end of the…
SAVILE: (To Deayton, heavily) The question you asked was about wrestling.
DEAYTON: Yes. And then you mentioned girls’ schools. I don’t know whe…
SAVILE: Well I understood this was a comedy programme. I realise now how wrong I was. (Audience laugh)
DEAYTON: So were you a professional wrestler?
SAVILLE: Yes I was.
DEAYTON: (To audience) Glad we got that cleared up.(Pulls face; audience giggles)
HISLOP: Feared by every girls’ school in the country…
SAVILE: That’s right.
MERTON: Due to having a rancid, pus-filled cock.(Huge audience laugh)
HISLOP: You’re on top form tonight, Paul…
SAVILLE: (Strangely) I’m…this is not what I…
FLOOR MANAGER: (OOV) OK, do you…(inaudible section)…shall we, for pick-ups…
MERTON: I’m terribly sorry. I don’t know what came over me.
SAVILE: A pus-filled cock, I imagine. (Shocked audience laugh)
MERTON: Oh, it’s nice to see you joining in. We’d been waiting for you, you sad senile old shitter. (Audience appears to do double-take)
DEAYTON: I think we…d-d-you you want to apologise to our guest, Paul?
MERTON: Sorry, I do apologise. Sir senile old shitter, is what I meant to say.
(Audience laugh; pause) Sir senile old shitter…who fucks minors.
(Audience unrest)
HISLOP: Sorry, I’m just looking at our lawyer again. (Waves) Hello!
(Audience laughs)
DEAYTON: Shall we get back on course with this, or sha…
SAVILLE: I do fuck miners, that’s quite correct. I have always done so. They can do the most wonderful things with cigars. The coal…
MERTON: What, they stick them up your senile, pus-filled arse?
(Audience laughs)
FLOOR MANAGER: (OOV): Come on…I’m getting an ear-bashing here. It’s…
MERTON: Oh they want to continue. Sorry, I’ll contain myself. Carry on…
DEAYTON: Right (Pause) You used to be a professional wrestler didn’t you?
(Huge audience laugh)
SAVILE: (Calmly) I did.
DEAYTON: You didn’t have a nickname or anything?
SAVILE: Yes – ‘Loser’. (Audience laughs)


TAP – The above sent into comments anonymously. If Savile can operate unchecked for sixty years and be a known paedophile and proud of it, it’s not too difficult to believe that he and his type are protected by the powerful. Savile used to drop off kids at Edward Heath’s place in his Rolls Royce, says Gordon Logan, ex-MI5.

Here’s another team on HIGNFY referring to Savile’s ‘attributes’, more obliquely but no doubting their meaning….and as a joke, saying the latest Savile TV series, with Savile aged 80, was risky seeing how old he was.


Here’s another outtake –

Not even Sarah Cornley?

She was an exception.

Who’s Sarah Cornley?

Sarah Cornley is…

About fifteen grand in damages, wasn’t she? (Uncertain audience laugh)

That’s right.

So if I was going to mention that you threatened to break her arm if she said anything…

You’d be very wrong. (Pause) I said I’d break both her arms. (Audience unease)

Fucking hell. I mean, you’re just sitting there, all shell suit and cigar, wearing those fucking…I don’t know what they are.

Chrome-plated SC-700 sun-visors, these are. Sent to me by…

We don’t give a shit. Ladies and gentlemen, Sir James Saville OBE. Jim has fixed it for me to have my arms broken.

The Nolans –

Savile had his arm round the 14 year old Coleen….

They could actually sing, even if they look naff today.

  1. Tap, you might want to read these:




    I read this, and the other one, some time ago, and at the time it didn’t ring true – particularly Merton’s lines. I’ve attended many HIGNFY recordings and the Merton I’ve seen on the show bears little resemblance to many of the passages here.

    That Jimmy Savile was a paedophile may be true, but I don’t think this transcript proves anything

  2. Tapestry says:

    It’s been on the internet a very long time. No one has issued a denial as yet.

  3. Anonymous says:

    I think you need to be careful with this one. Unless you have concrete evidence of Jimmy Savile was a paedophile you are gonna get your arse sued! Funny how you waited while he was dead.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a Jimmy Savile fan and never have been, but I thought you were humanitarians who was trying to better the human race. I was wrong because what you are acting like a bunch of bullies, which makes you no better than MP’s, Bankers, Solicitors, Estate Agents….etc

    I did used to regularly read this blog and considered it to be reasonably credible but when you attack someone like that without foundation I find it as inhumane as the rest of the self serving bastards who are trying to take over the world!

    Hang your heads in shame.


  4. Tapestry says:

    Sorry to lose your spirited commentary, anonymous. You’re not concentrating enough. We blogged Jimmy Savile as a paedo supplying kids to Edward Heath two weeks ago i.e. a week before he died. I I am not psychic.

  5. Anonymous says:

    Hi Tap, Sarah Cornley was mentioned, “as an exeption.” Any information on this.
    Is she a real person.

    Jimmy Savile the sicko – groping 14 year old Coleen Nolan
    Dont do a search on him and a children’s home!! also the Nolan sisters (Coleen) !!
    the then 53-year old Savile “I was 14, and he was all over me”.
    An audience guest on that 1979 edition of TOTP stood next to 53-year old pervie Jimmy Savile LEECH as he held 14y Coleen Nolan tightly under her right breast.
    (see 3.20m+) –
    Great close friends like Edward Heath off shore yacht kiddie parties northern ireland’ “Willy” Whitelaw & Buddie Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe. –
    Savile, the star of children’s television favourite Jim’ll Fix It, decided to start proceedings against the Rupert Murdoch paper after a series of articles linked the former Radio One DJ with Jersey children’s home Haut de la Garenne.
    The police are currently investigating the care home after human remains were found at the residence where children were allegedly tortured and sexually abused.
    Also frequented & loved hospital cold rooms!!! RIP parties where no one says no.

    Fox Hayes for action against The truth? exposing Sun
    OK great deal for your children’s parties DJ up for anything kids RU next
    its OK im sterile but that does not mean clean.


  7. Node says:

    This is an old hoax from a website called http://www.sotcaa.net. They set out to create a new media story urban myth, ie like the story of the original copy of The Wicker Man being buried under the M5. Well this was their attempt at one, it obviously worked as 10 years later people are still falling for it.

  8. Tapestry says:

    It reads real to me.

  9. Node says:

    That’s because the best hoaxes seem believable, and to be honest it’s too over the top, some of the stuff Paul Merton is saying is just too strong. Anyway, the whole story is here including interviews with the guys that did it…


  10. Tapestry says:

    I don’t think people make hoaxes out of things that are not funny. They claim they were aiming at April 1st. It doesn’t ring true.

  11. Node says:

    Huh what are you talking about, people create hoaxes for all sorts of reasons are UFO’s ‘funny’, is the Loch Ness Monster ‘funny’?

    For a start it is actually pretty funny anyway, also they said the aim was to create a story that culturally would get attached in pub conversations, and through you believing this, it is being.
    Although admittedly it’s strange to carry on believing a hoax after being told it is one. Do you think these guys are lying about this then? Did they create a whole website to facilitate this? What on earth would be the point?

  12. Tapestry says:

    The point – to keep their jobs.

    Loch Ness hoax is to make money.

  13. Node says:

    Right so you can do hoaxes that are funny or to make money or to fool people who love to see conspiracy in everything.

    I don’t know whose jobs you are talking about, these guys are well known comedy bloggers, who have worked with Chris Morris. The idea that they are going to help cover up an unbroadcast episode of HIGNFY where Hislop and Merton make Jimmy Savile jokes to keep some shadowy figure in their job is hilarious. It was a hoax, you fell for it, now move on.

  14. Tapestry says:

    You suggest it was funny. It wasn’t.

  15. Node says:

    You’re suggesting that an excerpt from HIGNFY the long running comedy programme, with Ian Hislop and Paul Merton two hugely successful comedians and satirists making deliberately OTT jokes at a well loved children’s broadcaster, is not funny at all. Maybe you should lighten up a bit? Even the pretend audience found it funny hence the (Hugh audience laugh) after the jokes…

  16. Tapestry says:

    Either this is real, or the writes wanted to get information out. This is not motivated by humour.

  17. Anonymous says:

    Well, it’s not real. And the writers didn’t do it because “they wanted to get information out”. Did you bother to read the interview with them that Node linked you to? That’d probably clear things up for you a bit better than stubbornly sticking to some weird and misinformed idea that it might still somehow turn out to be real.

  18. Tapestry says:

    It was reading the link that convinced me it was real and not a spoof.

  19. Anonymous says:

    Ha it’s truly pointless having any meaningful discussion here, especially with someone who wilfully sees what he wants to see regardless of reality staring them in the face. This website is so agenda led and your opinions so blinkered that the ‘knowledge starts here’ tag is laughable. So go ahead, convince yourself that politicians are shape-shifting paedophiles, it’s very entertaining for the rest of us.

  20. Tapestry says:

    shape-shifting ? No.
    paedophile? Yes.

    Plus it’s not, I repeat, amusing.

    That’s knowledge for you.
