Max Clifford is an unrepentant sadist who, driven by sex and money, "delighted in humiliating his victims", former Tory minister David Mellor has told ITV News.
Mellor was forced to resign in 1992 after Clifford took details of the politician's affair with actress Antonia de Sancha to the tabloids, including spicing up the story with lies.
Responding to Clifford's jailing, Mellor said the celebrity publicist "thought he was above retribution" and admitted that he took a "little bit of pleasure" at seeing him convicted.
"He came out this morning and waved two fingers at the judge ... and the judge waved two even bigger fingers back," Mellor added.
