Veteran British comic Freddie Starr stormed out of a U.K. Tv interview when he was quizzed about his sex abuse claims ordeal.

Starr was arrested in November, 2010 over allegations he groped a 14-year-old girl, and he later faced further accusations from several other females.

Last week (06May14), officials at Britain's Crown Prosecution Service confirmed they were formally dropping the investigation after 18 months, and Starr sat down with a team from U.K. show Good Morning Britain for his first televised interview since being cleared.

In the pre-taped chat at his home, broadcast on Monday morning (12May14), journalist Susanna Reid asked Starr if anything he had done in previous relationships could have been "misinterpreted".

A furious Starr retorted, "Are you being serious?", before ripping off his microphone and asking the presenter to leave his property.

He later returned to the interview, explaining, "It's hard to have an interview like this with it being so raw - I've only been released three days ago, I'm just catching up on my sleep."

His wife, Sophie, also sat down with Reid and revealed the police investigation has changed her husband forever.

She said, "It's changed him as a man. It's like even the little things like with his daughter, at one point he was scared to even cuddle her because you've got the world judging you. I know Freddie will come back from this."
