Secret Life

I watched some of the Netflix series on Jimmy Savile - as much as I needed to. One thing that came out of it was what a peculiar life he led, entirely in the spotlight of publicity. 

Gabriel Garcia Marquez said that people have three lives - public, private and secret. But Jimmy Savile had no private life - no girlfriend, children or friends in the normal sense of the word. He had an abnormally public life and what we now know was a perverted secret life - the private bit on the middle was missing almost entirely. 

That should have been a red flag flying - but, of course, he hid in plain sight.
