The fallen telly favourite faces court again next month after new allegations from women who claim he attacked them.

But we can reveal that his businesses are being drained of cash, with money going to his family members.

Documents filed to Companies House just days ago show that a firm called RHE Investments Ltd has disposed of £2.9m in cash and assets.

Harris resigned as a director of the firm – still worth £2.8m – last year and it is now controlled by his wife Alwen, niece Jennifer and brother Bruce.

And Harris, 86, and his family have put two other firms into liquidation, paying out the remaining money after costs and tax to themselves.

Rolf Harris Enterprises Ltd and RHEL Holdings Ltd are currently being wound up.

But public statements by accountants handling the books show that £859,000 from RHEL Ltd and £1.9m from Rolf Harris Enterprises was paid to the directors.

As well as his wife, niece and brother, Harris himself is listed as a director of this firm.

He was jailed for five years in 2014 for molesting four girls between 1968 and 1986.
