BBC plan film on Tory links of vice girl in George Osborne ¿cocaine¿ pictures | Mail Online
Well-placed sources say Ms Rowe, who is represented by media lawyer Mark Lewis, is threatening to make explosive revelations about her former clients in the upper echelons of the Conservative Party.
Mr Osborne was severely embarrassed in 2005 by the pub¬lication of a picture of him as a 22 year-old Oxford student, smoking a cigarette with his arm draped around Ms Rowe. According to some claims, cocaine and rolled-up papers, allegedly for snorting the drug, could be seen in the picture taken at a party.
Mr Osborne confirmed he knew Ms Rowe, who ran an agency called Black Beauties supplying prostitutes to clients paying from £350 an hour.
He said he came into contact with her through a friend who had a relationship with her and went on to become a drug addict.
But he strenuously denied that he took cocaine with her, saying the allegations were ‘defamatory and completely untrue’.
A BBC spokesman said: ‘Panorama is continuing to look into the phone-hacking story and we have been pursuing a number of lines of inquiry, of which this was one element. However, there are no immediate plans for a programme.’
