Rolf Harris was flanked by three plain-clothed security guards as he returned home after being released from jail in the middle of his latest sex abuse trial.
One of the bodyguards who helped Harris get out of a blue Ford car outside his home had his face covered with a mask.
The entertainer, 87, avoided reporters as he slipped out of Stafford Prison in the early hours of Friday morning but was photographed as he arrived at his £5m property.
Harris – wearing eyeglasses, a denim jacket and blue jeans – exited the car and slowly walked up a set of stairs towards his home by the river Thames in Berkshire.
Clear plastic bags containing personal belongings – including an Australian stamp collection, toothbrush, letters and papers – were carried into the house.
Harris returned home to be by the side of his sick wife, Alwen, 85, who was said to be in failing health in recent weeks.
A source recently said that Harris wanted to be reunited with his wife as soon as possible. Neither his wife nor their daughter, Bindi, 53, was seen outside the home when he arrived.
Harris is on trial accused of using his celebrity status to molest three young fans, aged 13 to 16, between 1971 and 1983.
On Thursday Judge Deborah Taylor told jurors Harris would be released from prison after his release from Stafford Prison.
He had been appearing in court via video-link but will now attend the rest of the trial in person.
Harris’s trial was not sitting on Friday so he will attend Southwark Crown Court, South London, when it resumes on Monday morning.
Meanwhile, one of his accusers insisted she was “not driven by money” as she gave evidence yesterday.
The woman claimed Australia-born Harris twice sexually assaulted her when she was 16.
She alleged Harris squeezed her breast after he appeared on ITV show Star Games in Cambridge in 1978, telling her: “You’re a little bit irresistible.”
The artist also groped her in the back seat of a car, she claims.
Jurors have heard she later described him as “groper Rolf” and a “dirty old man”.
Asked if she had lied, she said: “I absolutely have not. One of the reasons perhaps it was easier for me to tell police is because I have told people over the years.”
