Comedian Jim Davidson was released on bail today following his arrest for alleged historic sex offences.
The former Generation Game host was questioned by detectives investigating the Jimmy Savile sex abuse scandal over allegations dating back 25 years, his solicitor Henri Brandman said.
Mr Davidson, 59, was one of two men arrested on Wednesday. A 53-year-old man was also arrested in Hampshire.
Both were held on suspicion of sexual offences linked to Operation Yewtree, police confirmed.
The allegations are not directly linked to Savile, the Metropolitan Police said.
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.
He said Mr Davidson vigorously denied the allegations.
Scotland Yard is leading a national investigation into allegations against disgraced television presenter Savile and a number of other high-profile figures.
So far officers have questioned 10 people including former pop star Gary Glitter, comedian Freddie Starr and PR guru Max Clifford.
Detectives have recorded 199 crimes in 17 force areas in which Savile is a suspect.
