Shamed former pop star Gary Glitter has been rebailed until next year (14) following his arrest on suspicion of sex offences.

The 69 year old, real name Paul Gadd, was arrested last October (12) by officers probing the abuse scandal sparked by late British entertainer Jimmy Savile.

Glitter was free on bail until the middle of December (13) while cops continue Operation Yewtree, an investigation into claims that Savile abused hundreds of youngsters throughout his long-running entertainment career, but he has now been rebailed until February (14).

Savile died in 2011.
