One witness told investigators that Savile revealed the origin of his 'gross, big silver rings' when she remarked on them.
He said: 'D'you know what they are? They are glass eyes from dead bodies in Leeds Mortuary where I work and I love working there, and I wheel the dead bodies around at night and I love that.'
Another, unconnected witness - who was employed at the hospital - added: 'I do remember seeing this ring he had on that looked like an eyeball and - and I must've mentioned it to him.
'He said: 'It's made from the eyeball of a dead friend.''
A former nurse at Broadmoor Hospital said Savile told her about his appalling activities in Leeds.
He said he would 'muck about' posing dead bodies of men and women together before taking photographs.
She said: 'I was a little bit upset because I had no concept, in those days, of - while I'd heard of necrophilia ... but I didn't understand what it meant.'
The nurse added that Savile said he sexually assaulted the bodies as well, something he dubbed 'garamoosh' - a reference to oral sex.
A former patient at Barnet General Hospital in London said nurses told her in 1983 that Savile 'liked to have sex with dead bodies'.
