The TV series “The Trial of Christine Keeler” has brought back memories for Montgomeryshire MP Delwyn Williams.

Because the former solicitor and writer from Guilsfield could have been the ghost writer of her biography now being watched by millions on the TV screen .

The Conservative MP for Montgomeryshire between 1979 and 1983 had a chance meeting with the model at the centre of the 1960s sex scandal which rocked the Government of the time.

He was introduced to her by the Landlord of his local pub – The Man In The Moon in King’s Road, Chelsea – close to where he was living at the time.

"She had just sacked her ghost-writer and wanted me to take over. We had a two-hour chat about her life generally,” said Mr Williams.

"She was angry at those who had taken advantage of her but now ignored her and had left her in comparative poverty. She was down on her luck and very pale."

Mr Williams said he he had to decline the offer of writing her biography.

"I told her I was too busy and wished her luck," he added.

"Sadly it wasn't lucky for me as the film, Scandal, based on her life story, came out in 1989.

"I could have been involved in that journey from biography to the big screen."

He said that he was enjoying watching the current TV series.

"I consider the current series to be very close to the truth as she told me at that meeting," he said.

"I definitely do not think she was a call girl. She was just a silly beautiful young girl who wanted a good time. "
