He was filming in Bolton for The Reckoning, which will chart Savile’s early life, rise to fame and prolific offending.

Coogan previously admitted: “To play Jimmy Savile was not a decision I took lightly.

“Neil McKay has written an intelligent script tackling sensitively a horrific story which, however harrowing, needs to be told.”

The former BBC TV entertainer died aged 84 in 2011.

An inquiry later found he molested hundreds of children, some as young as eight.
