Celebrity agent Max Clifford had a string of affairs and went to steamy parties – but never forced women or girls into sex, a jury has heard.

The 70-year-old, who is accused of 11 counts of indecent assault on seven alleged victims, has laid bare details of his love life as he gave evidence in his defence at Southwark Crown Court.

Sitting in the witness box, the PR guru told the jury he had sex in his New Bond Street office, but only with a woman he was having an affair with.

Earlier, the court heard that he had told police there had been "slap and tickle, kissing and cuddling" at his HQ.

Clifford said he had affairs with four women, including a French model and a television dancer.

The court heard that Clifford had written about going to sex parties in a book, but he denied they were "orgies".

Clifford denies all charges against him. The trial continues.
