Fascinating story: Christine Keeler

Mary Kenny: Although shocking at the time, a Keeler-style affair now would not bring down the Government 

The Christine Keeler portrayed by the actress Sophie Cookson in the current BBC TV drama doesn't look at all like the Christine Keeler I met in the 1980s. By then, Christine seemed a poor soul living on a council estate in Chelsea. She had no money. She had lost custody of both her children, by two marriages. You could see that she had once been pretty, even beautiful, and with a fabulous body; but she now seemed worn down and almost bedraggled. I felt sorry for her.
