5:29 pm on 19 May 2013

Veteran Australian entertainer Rolf Harris has received standing ovations at his first performance since it was reported that he had been questioned by police over alleged sexual offences.

Harris made no direct reference to the allegations he is facing, but alluded to his situation several times during the show in Bristol in south-west England.

"You've got no idea what this means to have you turn up with such enthusiasm and such support," he told the audience.

Harris received standing ovations at the beginning and end of the performance.

The ABC reports that a man believed to be Harris has been questioned twice over alleged sexual offences.

He is due to report to authorities again next week.
