Tapes of Max Clifford describing how he groomed and exploited young women will be heard for the first time in a new documentary.
More than 100 hours of audio cassettes compiled by the predatory showbiz agent’s biographer Angela Levin have been scoured.
Viewers will hear him boast how he persuaded girls to have sex or spend time with his friends at sex parties.
On one tape, he says: “It was my party, my circus, so I was the ringmaster. We were all in this toy shop and we could play with every toy. I controlled it.”
He also recalls how he would phone girls posing as another businessman in the entertainment industry and manipulate them into performing sex acts in his London office.
The documentary lays bare how he became a master manipulator of senior Fleet Street figures.
Some of Clifford’s survivors also tell their stories.
One says: “I think it was power and control and the sex was the cherry on the top.”
