Cook's Fling With Nurse

12 August 2008 12:04 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

British comedian Peter Cook had a secret affair with a nurse who was helping him give up alcohol.

The late funnyman's widow, Judy, makes the revelation in a new book about her husband, titled Loving Peter: My Life With Peter Cook And Dudley Moore.

And the actress - who divorced Cook in 1989 - now reveals the extent of her former husband's notorious womanising.

Judy claims Cook, who died in 1995, insisted on being treated by a sexy, young nurse as he tried to quit drinking in the 1970s - and the pair subsequently embarked on a secret romance.

She writes, "I asked a friend to come back to our home in Hampstead (London) with me. After we arrived, I heard footsteps and voices outside - it was Peter and the nurse.

"My friend and I ran upstairs and hid inside a large trunk and a vast suitcase in one of the bedrooms.

"Peter and the nurse talked downstairs for what seemed like ages. Then I heard footsteps coming up the stairs. Peter said he thought her little black lacy pants with red flowers were saucy.

"Then they went quiet and I imagine they were having sex. Instead of thinking about what Peter was up to, I concentrated on fleeing the house quickly.

"When I confronted him the next morning, Peter seemed impressed by my having caught him out."

Judy was Cook's second wife - the comic was previously married to Wendy Snowdon, who he divorced in 1970, then to Lin Chong up until his death at the age of 57. »
