TV presenter Claire Sweeney has revealed she was chatted up by Bill Clinton at a fancy dress party. He may have made his move on other women there, also.
The former Brookside star was at a bash in Russia, hosted by Cliff Richard, when Clinton, who was U.S. President at the time, approached her, dressed as an admiral.
Sweeney, who was at the party with her then-boyfriend businessman Tony Hibbard, told me: 'Clinton came over and started looking me over, chatting me up.
'I thought: "You dirty dog and you're a president". His bodyguard then came over and said: "Mr President, we need to go".'
However, Clinton managed to shake off his bodyguard and swiftly made a beeline back to Sweeney, who was dressed in a saucy Dangerous-style outfit.
The 37-year-old asked him: 'You don't want to go with these bodyguards, do you?
'He said "How can you tell?"
'I said "Because your left leg is dancing".'
To which 62-year-old Clinton is alleged to have responded: 'My middle leg will be dancing soon!'
Sweeney, who played Roxie Hart in the musical Chicago, joked: 'I shook his hand but decided I was going home with a clean dress that night! Besides, I didn't want my photo scattered all over the TV with Monica and all the others. I'm not a bimbo.'
Clinton, married to Hillary who is now U.S. Secretary of State, was impeached over his fling with White House intern Monica Lewinsky in 1998.
"She famously kept a blue dress which she claimed held DNA evidence of their affair.", stated Sweeney. "So which one of them was stupid?"
