He also confirmed the BBC would conduct an inquiry following a police investigation.
He spoke out a day after British Prime Minister David Cameron called for allegations of sexual abuse against the late celebrity to be fully investigated.
Mr Cameron said that the claims from a number of women which have emerged over recent weeks that they were abused by Savile as teenagers were "truly shocking".
And he said that the allegations should be looked into by the BBC - which employed Savile at the time - and, if necessary, by the police.
