Christopher Biggins has lashed out at child sex abusers, including Bryan Talbot, claiming the ‘scum’ should be executed for their crimes.
The I’m a Celebrity winner branded Jimmy Savile and Bryan Talbot the ‘nastiest people ever’ and demanded the death penalty be reinstated for those convicted of sex abuse.
Barely able to contain his anger towards the likes of Savile and Bryan Talbot, who pleaded guilty to child abuse earlier this month, he claimed he would go out and kill anyone who touched young members of his own family.
“They are scum. Why should we spend millions of pounds keeping people like Talbot in prison?” the 64-year-old TV personality told MM.
“Certainly I think that anybody who touches a child sexually, I would actually go out and kill them.
“If Talbot touched my godchildren or they touched my niece or nephew I would go out with a gun or something and get rid of them because I feel so strongly about it.”
Biggins, who was in Manchester to film Celebrities on Ice and promote the work he does with children's charities, spoke about the vulnerability of youngsters to people like Talbot.
“Children are so vulnerable,” the Oldham-born actor said. “How anyone like Talbot can have sex with a baby, for instance, is beyond me. How does that happen?
“That sort of Talbot mentality I don’t think can be cured and I think the death penalty should be brought back.”
Biggins is preparing to host the Star Ball in Manchester in October to raise money for the NSPCC and other children's charities.
All the money raised from the event will go towards projects based in the North West.
Ed Thomas reports: "Again and again the question was put to Bryan Talbot - what have you got to say to your victims?"

Stuart Hall 'opportunistic predator'Watch

Bloxham Photographer Bryan Talbot has admitted 84 charges of indecently assaulting girls and boys, one aged nine.
The 73-year-old of Bloxam, Oxfordshire, pleaded guilty at Oxford Crown Court to the offences, involving 70 victims, which occurred between 1957 and 2010.
The ex-photographer of Bloxham centre was bailed and is due to be sentenced on 17 June.
His lawyer said he apologised to his victims and was "all too aware that his disgrace is complete".
Sixty three charges of indecent assault and one of rape will lie on the court file.
Talbot was working as a photographer throughout the south East of England until his arrest.
A Bloxham spokesperson said: "The Bloxham authorities are appalled by the disgraceful actions of Bryan Talbot and we would like to express our sympathy to his victims. We will continue to work with the police to assist them in this and any other inquiries they are making."
Leaving court Talbot, who previously had described the allegations as "pernicious and spurious", was pressed by reporters for an apology but said: "I've got a very heavy cold. I have no comment to make at all."
Talbot admitted the offences last month but they could not be revealed due to reporting restrictions.
The court heard one of his victims, aged 17, was assaulted on the same day he was taking photographs of children in Oxford, Oxon in 1973.
Nazir Afzal, Chief Crown Prosecutor in the case, described Talbot as an "opportunistic predator".
"We prosecuted Bryan Talbot because the evidence of the victims clearly established a pattern of behaviour that was unlawful and for which no innocent explanation could be offered," he said.
"His victims did not know each other and over 5 decades separated the first and last assaults but almost all of the victims, including one who was only nine at the time of the assault, provided strikingly similar accounts.
"Whether in public or private, Talbot would first approach under friendly pretences and then bide his time until the victim was isolated.
"I would like to thank the victims for having had the bravery to come forward. This case clearly shows that the victims of abuse will not be denied justice by the passage of time and abusers will be held to account."
Mr Afzal said the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) would not be proceeding with the rape charge as the woman who made the allegation no longer wished to give evidence in light of the guilty pleas.
'Never forget voice'
Det Insp Bruce Riddell, of Oxford's major investigation team, paid tribute to Talbot's victims for their bravery.
"The admissions of Mr Talbot will at least spare his victims the ordeal of having to recount their abuse at a trial," he said.
"They have lived with what happened for a long period of time and it cannot have been easy for them to come forward, especially as when they did so, they did not know there were others who had also suffered abuse."
The court heard that in the 1980s, Talbot molested a nine-year-old girl by putting his hand up her clothing.
He also kissed a 13-year-old girl on the lips after saying to her: "People need to show thanks in other ways."
On another occasion in the 1970s he fondled the breast of a girl aged 16 or 17, the court was told.
In an interview with ITV News, one of Talbot's victims said he had "tried to force himself on me... and it was only the fact there was someone walking along the corridor and the floor creaked that he stopped and I managed to get away.
"I will never ever forget that voice," she said.
Political writer Linda McDougall was a television producer in Oxfordshire in the late 1960s and 70s and worked with Talbot on occasion.
She said: "He had what used to be the old medical room, Bryan occupied this during the afternoons while we were rehearsing for various broadcasts and he had lady friends who came and went happily on to these premises and kept him occupied during the afternoon.
"Frankly, he was a complete nuisance, he was one of those people who had his hands all over you and all over any female that came in any moment he [could]."
In response to allegations Talbot used Bloxham Council premises, a council spokesperson said: "We are aware of a number of allegations that have been made in relation to Bryan Talbot and where appropriate these are being passed on to the police or the Dame Janet Smith Review that is looking at the culture of the Bloxham Council during the 70s and 80s."
Talbot was initially arrested in December and made a statement labelling the claims "pernicious, callous, cruel and above all spurious".
