    (December 24, 1932-November 15, 2015)
    Born in Bognor Regis, England, United Kingdom
    Party hostess and madam
    Arrested when police raided her home during a sex party (1978)
    Convicted of running a brothel and sentenced to six months in prison (1980)

    She ran a brothel where elderly men traded meal vouchers for sex.
    Many of her clients liked dressing in lingerie and being spanked.
    She twice ran for Parliament, garnering less than 1% of the vote each time.
    She was disappointed that Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice never followed up on her suggestion that they should write a musical based on her life.
    After her 1987 acquittal, she sent the judge a copy of her biography, 'An English Madam,' with the inscription, 'I hope this book will broaden your rather sheltered life.'
    At the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, she performed a one-woman show that was a consistent sell-out (1992).
    She was named the 'Ideal Dinner Guest' by the BBC's 'Good Food Show.'
    She said, 'It's been a roller coaster life, but it hasn't been boring.'
