Christine Keeler's name is as synonymous with the Sixties sexual revolution as the Pill. Having found fame and success as a model - the portrait of her astride a chair is iconic - her short affair with the Minister of War, John Profumo, led to the downfall of Harold Macmillan's government and was at the epicentre of the social and political earthquake that followed. She was the subject of scandal, intrigue and gossip and was tried for perjury and briefly jailed following the death of Stephen Ward, who had introduced her to Profumo. Now that those directly involved are no longer alive, Christine is finally able to tell the full story of that extraordinary time. This is the life's journey of a woman whom history has refused to let go, who can never escape being Christine Keeler. She remains a headline and will do so for ever. It is the fascinating and shocking story of her enormous personal sacrifice, her unstinting resolve and her triumphant survival, set against a backdrop of political turmoil and Cold War espionage. This story Christine Keeler has finally found herself brave enough to tell will shatter all preconceptions and has the power to rewrite history.
