Speaking to the camera, Nemone explained: “Barbara’s husband was arrested, he was a gangster so I went down to the Old Bailey to apply for bail.
“It was the usual thing… settled address, strong community ties, charitable activities, all the cliches, and then: married to a distinguished actress. And the boys in the press gallery go balmy shouting, ‘Who? Who? Who?'” she continued.
“And it can’t be hidden any longer. So Barbara’s name is in the frame and she is absolutely furious.
“Barbara was furious with me and she came up to me outside the court and she said, ‘you f**king little cow, they won’t sell me with a pound of sugar in this business now that you’ve let the cat out of the bag’.
“But, in fact, it was quite the reverse, the press fell in love with her. They thought she was the cheeky little cockney sparrow who stood by her man,” Nemone added.
Dame Barbara was married to nightclub owner Ronnie Knight from March 1964 until January 1985.
Before their marriage, the actress dated Reggie Kray and his older brother Charlie.
