Sharon Elliot was a dancer when the publicist approached her after an audition and told her he could arrange a screen test for her on a Bond film.

She was then called by a man who Clifford told her was Bond producer Cubby Broccoli - who asked her to confirm whether or not Clifford was circumcised.

"I froze as he grabbed my hand and dragged me into a toilet," she said. "All I kept thinking was 'this man is going to rape me.'"

Ms Elliot, 48, who was prompted to come forward when the Jimmy Savile scandal emerged, said that as well as destroying her career, the incident badly impacted on her personal life.

"I feel sad for the man," she added. "He knows what he's done and yet he can't find remorse within him."
