The investigation into Pedophile Savile has so far led to the arrest of singer Gary Glitter, comedians Jim Davidson and Freddie Starr, radio presenter Stuart Hall.
The high-profile Australia is the 11th person arrested so far in the investigation.
Savile died in October, 2011 before charges against him were laid.
