‘WE HAD TUNA SAND­WICHES AT HIS mUm AND DAD’S HOUSE’

The Mail on Sunday - Event - - PROFUMO’S GIRL AND A WHOLE LOTTA TROUBLE -

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.’
