Stuart Hall groomed a girl at 12 and made her read him graphic passages from lovemaking manual the Joy of Sex in his BBC dressing room, one of his victims said today.
The woman, now 39, has tearfully told for the first time how the disgraced It's A Knockout presenter abused her and 'put his tongue in my mouth'.
Speaking about reading him excerpts from the book, called the 'gourmet guide to lovemaking', she said as an innocent 12-year-old she began to blush and became very upset because it was so sexually graphic.
Shame: Stuart Hall, 83, who was jailed for 15 months, asked a 12-year-old victim to read him the Joy of Sex in his BBC dressing room, the woman involved said today
The sentence prompted a wave of outrage and fury, with victims saying it made a mockery of their horrific ordeal and politicians and campaigners condemning it as 'incredibly lenient'.
He was jailed for 15 months after admitting that he indecently assaulted 13 girls between 1967 and 1986. His youngest victim was nine.
Hall targeted the new victim who spoke out today how she was invited to the BBC Manchester studios with a friend after he approached them at a petrol station.
At the time he presented North West Tonight and told staff the girls were his 'nieces' and he was giving them elocution lessons - a way he managed to target children and young girls over several decades.
Two years after he had forced her read him the graphic sex manual, Hall targeted her again on the set of Children in Need, when she was 14, and began feeding her champagne.
'Then he kissed me on the lips and put his tongue in my mouth. It was gross. I felt sick afterwards,' she told The Sun.

'We were going to turn 16 and he kept telling us to come and see him when we did. Obviously we didn't. Looking back it was all part of the grooming process.'
The BBC said yesterday it was 'appalled that some of Stuart Hall's crimes took place in connection with his work at the BBC and offers an unreserved apology to the people he abused'.
Under sentencing rules Hall will be released automatically after serving just half the term and the Attorney General has already been forced to agree to review the sentence after being inundated with complaints.
He was last night examining whether it was 'unduly lenient' and should be referred back to the Court of Appeal.
Guilty: The former It's A Knockout presenter initially denied the charges and told police his victims were lying before pleading guilty
When Hall was first arrested last December, he told police his victims were all lying as part of a 'vendetta going on against people in the public eye'.
But the publicity led to more women coming forward, and in April the married father of two finally admitted 14 counts of indecent assault. The pleas could only be revealed last month, after reporting restrictions were lifted.
Last night two of the women who helped bring the predator to justice led the condemnation of his sentence. The pair waived their legal right to anonymity in the Daily Mail last month.
Susan Harrison was 16 when Hall lured her to BBC premises on the false pretext of helping her record a song, before attacking her in his car.
Mrs Harrison, now 61, said: 'His victims deserved more. I hope that he has an uncomfortable time in prison and reflects on the gravity of what he did.
'I feel that the sentence should have been higher especially taking into account the age of some of his victims.'
The mother of one added: 'His lenient sentence will not act as deterrent to others who go on to sexually abuse youngsters. I am pretty shocked by it and feel that he has almost walked free and it has made a mockery of what the victims have been through.
'This is after all his denials and calling us all liars and the claims spurious, callous and cruel – he has never personally apologised for what he has done and he is not remorseful.'

Now 55, she told the Mail: 'When he made those comments outside court about our allegations being false I felt like I had been abused all over again. He does not appear to be remorseful at all.'
Another of Hall's victims, who was also 17 when he molested her, told ITV News that 'justice has not been done'.
The woman, identified only as Amy, added: 'It's a mockery. It's not helping any future cases at all. It's not helping the victims. It's just giving people like Stuart Hall a slap on the wrist.'
