John Leslie holds hands with mystery woman in London after he was cleared of groping woman's breasts

JOHN Leslie holds hands with a mystery brunette after being cleared of groping a woman's breast at a Christmas party.

The former Blue Peter presenter was pictured strolling with the woman in Wimbledon, South West London, yesterday.

Leslie, 55, wore a huge black coat, grey jeans and sunglasses on his head.

The Scotsman also had a tartan face mask wrapped around his wrist as he strolled along the high street.

His female companion matched in a black coat and sunglasses as she held his finger with her hand.

It comes weeks after the presenter was found not guilty of groping a woman’s breasts at a party in 2008.

Leslie thanked his supporters and said he'll be spending time "putting his family back together" after he was cleared in just 23 minutes by jurors.

The TV star had insisted on his innocence, previously telling Southwark Crown Court: "I never sexually assaulted anyone. It's not in my nature."

He branded the accusations "ludicrous and crazy" as he was supported by a string of female co-stars – including Anthea Turner and Fern Britton.

Leslie later shared a picture of himself looking into the sunset with the caption: "Thank you to everybody who has supported me through this ordeal.

"I will be spending some time putting my family back together again."

The Scot was one of the most popular personalities on daytime television, presenting on Blue Peter from 1989 to 1994.

Leslie, who also appeared on This Morning, is well-known for his high-profile past relationships.

He dated nurse Abi Titmuss between 1999 and 2004. She was catapulted to fame when a sex tape was leaked at the end of their relationship.

Leslie also dated actress Catherine Zeta Jones for two years in 1991 after they met at a Chesney Hawkes after-party.
