Our Weeki Leeks correspondent has just unearthed some amazing new facts about the elusive Lord Lucan. It seems that he settled in Capetown after fleeing Britain in the seventies and had a sex change operation at the Groote Schuur Hospital. He then opened a brothel catering mainly for the rich and well connected.
Lucan operated under the name Lucy Lord for many lucrative years, enjoying protection from the authorities for various services rendered, presumably of the sexual nature.
Lucy is well tanned and still quite slim, with breast implants and regular botox lip injections it looks just like one of the natives.
At seventy six one would expect the old expat to be slowing down, but late last year Lucy was spotted leaving the Geneva clinisc of Dr Herman H Clitterman after a rebore and sleeve procedure, proving there is still life in the old dog.
