– Rolf Harris will no longer be the face of British Paints but brand bosses say the move is unrelated to his arrest for questioning ove allegations concerning sexual offences.
More than three decades after their first television commercial, British Paints and Harris were reunited two years ago in an advertisement for its “4 Seasons” paint, using footage from his 1975 commercial and ending with his trademark can-tap and slogan – “Trust British Paints – sure can!”
But, heading into winter, the Australian showbiz legend will not be part of the advertisements. DuluxGroup has confirmed there are no immediate plans to reassure to the relationship.
British tabloid ‘The Sun’ recently reported Harris, 83, was arrested on March 28th as part of Operation Yewtree, launched after BBC television entertainer and disc jockey Jimmy Savile was exposed as a child-sex predator.
The allegations surrounding Harris are not linked to Savile and a understood to be historic.
While Harris is understood to have strongly denied the claims and has not been charged, his rand has nevertheless been in free fall. Last week, Britain’s Channel 5 confirmed it had dropped scheduled screenings of two Rolf Harris shows: “Olive the Ostrich” and repeats of “Rolf’s Animal Clinic”.
The station said: “While this legal matter involving Rolf Harris is ongoing we have removed the programs.”
Before the arrest media groups had been preparing to name Harris since last November when his home, west of London, was searched by detectives. However, Harris was widely identified in social media including Twitter.
British Paints has denied the decision to withdraw its Harris commercial was due to negative publicity – Eamonn Duff


About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
