Christine Keeler: Born in Uxbridge 2 February 1942
Christine Keeler was at the centre of the Profumo affair which shocked Britain in the sixties.
In 1963 Secretary of State for War John Profumo had an affair with Miss Keeler who was also intimately involved with Russian assistant Naval Attache Eugene Ivanov.
The scandal that followed brought down the government, imprisoned Christine for nine months and led to the suicide of Dr Stephen Ward, the man who introduced Christine to Profumo.
