Christine Keeler, who has died aged 75, was the model and dancer at the heart of the Profumo affair, which shook the British establishment in 1963, contributing to the downfall of the Harold Macmillan Government. Keeler was born in Uxbridge in 1942 and raised in Berkshire by her mother and step-father. Aged 19, Keeler was performing at Murray’s Cabaret Club when she met Stephen Ward, an osteopath, artist and society figure.
