‘WE HAD TUNA SANDWICHES AT HIS mUm AND DAD’S HOUSE’
DANA GILLESPIE, EX-GIRLFRIEND ‘I went once to his parents’ place in Bromley – David asked me to go and meet them. I was 13 or 14 at the time. So I go and they’re in this tiny working-class house. I’ve never seen a place like it. Our house in South Kensington was enormous, but this looked like everything had been squeezed into it. His parents were sitting there and a television was blasting away in the corner. I think we had little tuna sandwiches. I came from a house where everyone chatted, but his parents didn’t say anything. It was a very chilly atmosphere.
‘I could tell that David didn’t like living there. He was uncomfortable during the entire visit. When his parents went out, David said to me, “I want to get out of here. I have to get out of here. I want to go up in the world.” He was ambitious from an early age, but then he had the talent.’
