Extraordinary scenes at the Sheridan libel trial.
Giving evidence is Tommy’s wife Gail – “We know each other by first name, but for the purposes of the court, I am going to refer to you as Mrs Sheridan.”
On the allegation that Sheridan’s lover rolled ice cubes around his naked body with her mouth: “You’re like a monkey, so anybody that was rolling an ice cube round your body would have had a hair ball in their throat,” she said, before turning to the jury. “He looks like a gorilla. He’s covered in hair from head to toe. There’s more hair on his body than there is on his head – but there is no mention of that [in The News of the World].”
The Horror…. the sheer horror
