Anybody got any advice or know what to say to a 10 year-old daughter who's asking who Jimmy Saville is?

It's an tricky situation for you but I suppose at least it's an opportunity to bring up the subject of adults behaving inappropriately to children, and what the child should do about it.

I thought it was a very good opportunity to talk to DD about how the people who might harm you aren't always "strangers". I leapt on it as a teachable moment.
