CELEBRITY agent Max Clifford had a string of affairs and went to steamy parties hosted by Swindon starlet Diana Dors but never forced women or girls into sex, a jury has heard.

The 70-year-old, who denies 11 counts of indecent assault on seven alleged victims, laid bare details of his love life as he gave evidence in his defence at Southwark Crown Court.

Sitting in the witness box, the PR guru told the jury he had sex in his New Bond Street office but only with a woman he was having an affair with.

And he told them of sex parties he attended, hosted by film star Diana Dors – born as Diana Fluck in Swindon and once thought of as the UK’s answer to Marilyn Monroe.

The court heard that Clifford had written about going to sex parties in a book, but he denied they were ‘orgies’.

“There would have been parties from my younger days when I was friends with Diana Dors because Diana had parties,” he said.

Asked by Richard Horwell QC, defending: “Have you ever had any sexual contact with a woman without consent?", Clifford replied “No.”
