Mandy Rice-Davies, a key figure in the 1963 Profumo affair, has died aged 70 after a short battle with cancer, her publicist said today.
It is with deep sadness that the family of Marilyn Foreman, also known as Mandy Rice-Davies, have confirmed that she passed away yesterday evening after a short battle with cancer. They have asked for their privacy to be respected and no further comment will be made.
The former model and showgirl was a friend of Christine Keeler, whose affair with former government minister John Profumo in the early 1960s almost brought down the then-ruling Conservative government.
Rice-Davies, who was born near Llanelli and grew up in Solihull, became famous for a comment she made at the trial of Stephen Ward, who was accused of living off her and Keeler's "immoral earnings."
When prosecutors told her that Lord Astor denied an affair with her, she replied, "He would, wouldn't he?" - often misquoted as "Well he would say that, wouldn't he?".
