Zoe’s telly star dad Johnny Ball, 78, told the Mirror at the time: “We are very happy that she is finding a new lease of life.
“She is very happy at the moment, and that is lovely.” Strictly Come Dancing presenter Zoe, 46, was madly in love with the 40-year-old, who was believed to have made her happy since her marriage split.
As well as being acquainted with some of the players in the infamous Profumo Affair, Lawton wrote a fictionalised account of the scandal as the subject of his Inspector Troy novel, A LITTLE WHITE DEATH.

I am about to write an obituary (sort of) for someone I never met. Christine Keelers life after 'the scandal' strikes me as little short of wasted, and on a Channel 4 talk show in the late 1980s she herself described her life in the 1970s as 'more existing than living'.
With the death earlier this month of Christine Keeler, fellow author John Lawton asked for the chance to write an obituary.And I could only see myself as causing pain by asking questions. Perhaps this is just my perception rather than reality because having to check the progress bar and finding it at 58% is somehow less informative than sticking your finger between the pages and guess-timating that youre more or less halfway through. Ive even come across people who admit to being only occasional readers, who will make a final decision between two titles by the width of them.Are todays authors simply more aware of pace, so more of the type of novels I tend to choose are better at keeping me turning the pages?“The circumstances are not being treated as suspicious, and the coroner has been informed.” In July 2017, Zoe posted a moving tribute to Billy with a picture of their feet which they took on a beach.A source close to Billy claimed the cameraman suffered from depression.
