60’s model Christine Keeler dies age 75

Christine Keeler, the model embroiled in the 1960s Profumo affair, has died aged 75, her son has said on Facebook.

Her son Seymour Platt posted.

I wish to share some sad news.

My mother, the grandmother to my beautiful little girl, passed away late last night. She suffered in the last few years with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease but lost the fight.

As many of you know my mother, Christine Keeler, fought many fights in her eventful life, some fights she lost but some she won.

She earned her place in British history but at a huge personal price.

We are all very proud of who she was.
