Christopher Edwards has told the jury at Nottingham Crown Court that his wife told him how, when she was a teenager, she wrote a letter to the former Liverpool boss Bill Shankly and that she received a reply inviting her to meet him at the Cumberland Hotel in London.
He told the court that Susan Edwards also told him she had correspondence with the actor Gerard Depardieu, but that over the last few days he has come to believe the letters she received were actually written by her.
