Rolf Harris has admitted that he sexually admired a 13-year-old girl while on holiday and added that he had a "darker side" to his cheery public persona.

The 84-year-old veteran entertainer told the jury at Southwark Crown Court that he was referring to the teenager's body when he complimented her on her bikini during a holiday in the 1970s, the Daily Star reported.

The Australian-born British-based star is accused of 12 counts of indecent assault on four alleged victims between 1968 and 1986, however, he has denied all the charges.

Harris also told jurors that he felt "sickened" by his behaviour, but insisted that the girl was a "willing participant" in the string of sexual encounters between them.
