Disgraced entertainer Rolf Harris is to stand trial in London on January 9 next year on eight new sexual assaults charges.
The alleged offences on girls and women took place between 1971 and 2004.
Harris appeared at London’s Southwark Crown Court via videolink from Stafford prison where he is serving a jail term of almost six years for separate sexual assault offences.
The 86-year-old pleaded not guilty to all charges.
The trial is expected to last up to five weeks.
