The former 'Generation Game' and 'Big Break' host was questioned by detectives investigating the Jimmy Savile sex abuse scandal over allegations dating back 25 years, his solicitor Henri Brandman said.
Scotland Yard said earlier that a 59-year-old was held in west London at around noon today after a 53-year-old had been arrested in Hampshire at around 8am, both on suspicion of sexual offences linked to Operation Yewtree.
In a statement, Mr Brandman said: "Two women have made allegations in respect of Jim that date back approximately 25 years.
"The complainants were then in their mid 20s.
"Jim vigorously denies the allegations.
"He answered police questions as fully as he was able after this passage of time.
"He has not been charged with any offence.
"Neither he nor I will be making any further comment."
