The Profumo affair was a very British scandal which uncovered a secret world of sex, horse-play, drinking orgies and spying, in high places, in which Ms Keeler shared her favours with Mr Profumo, and Commander Eugene Ivanov, the Soviet assistant naval attaché in London.

The crisis forced John Profumo to quit his job as war secretary and ultimately contributed to the downfall of the Tory government the following year.
