Paedophile Clement Freud fathered a child with his teenage nanny – then kicked her out of his home!

Paedophile Clement Freud ‘fathered a child with his 17-year-old nanny – then kicked her out of his home’

  • Former Liberal MP and broadcaster Clement Freud got his nanny pregnant
  • She was hired in 1955, aged 16, to look after his eldest daughter, Nicola
  • When it emerged 17-year-old was pregnant he threw her out of the house
  • Teen, named Barbara, ended up in home for unmarried mothers and gave the baby up – although Freud initially attempted to have her married off

Child molesting MP Sir Clement Freud got a 17-year-old teenager he hired as a nanny pregnant before throwing her out of his house, it has been claimed.

Broadcaster and former Liberal MP Freud, who died in 2009 aged 84, was exposed as a paedophile last month.

Now, relatives of the teenage nanny have revealed how he got her pregnant and described how she was forced to leave his home, ending up in a home for unmarried mothers and giving the baby up for adoption.

The girl was just 16 when she got the job as a live-in nanny at the Freud’s home in north London in 1955, looking after Freud’s eldest daughter, Nicola, one of his five children with his wife, actress Jill Flewett.

The nanny, Barbara, who was originally from Essex, was left homeless when she revealed she was pregnant, prompting Freud to throw her out of his home, while her horrified parents also refused to allow her to stay with them. 

She was instead forced to move into a home for unmarried mothers where in 1957 she gave birth to a daughter, Christine. Later, she told an aunt who the father was.

Now, one of the nanny’s relatives has spoken to The Sun about the ordeal: ‘He behaved abominably.

‘Every time we saw his face on television you had to pinch yourself to realise what this genial and charming so-called gentleman was really like.’ 

The relative claimed Freud initially tried to marry the teenager off and arranged for her to move to Manchester, where he said a man would look after her and the child.

Instead, Barbara went to the home for unmarried mothers and gave the baby up. It is not known if Freud had raped her.

She went on to marry and have two more children and died three years ago aged 74.  

Another of Freud’s victims, Sylvia Woosley, told how he had ruined her life after sexually abusing her from the age of ten.

Meanwhile Vicky Haynes, 64, who was raped as a teenager by Freud, even alerted the Madeleine McCann investigation after realising that the serial child predator had befriended Kate and Gerry McCann in Praia da Luz, Portugal, where he had a villa.

Another woman to come forward, Rosemary Rimmer-Clay, said Freud had lunged at her with a ‘horrible slobbery kiss’ when she was 19.

Mrs Rimmer-Clay, 62, had been a student at Dundee University, where Freud was the 51-year-old Rector – as well as being an MP – when in 1975 he invited her for coffee one evening.

She agreed because he was ‘a bit of a hero of mine’. She said: ‘I’m older and wiser now but at the time I thought he just wanted to chat about university.’

They went to her flat and the MP and chef cooked her an omelette before ‘lunging’ at her. ‘He was all hands,’ she recalled. ‘And then he gave me this horrible slobbery kiss with his tongue and, literally, I had never been kissed by anyone.

‘And I thought it was a really horrible experience in the worst kind of way.’

Mrs Rowlerson’s account chimes with that of Nicky, a woman who called the BBC’s Jeremy Vine show to tell how, when she was introduced to Freud as a trainee secretary, he startled her by whisking her to a theatre and holding her hand in the dark.

It was 1979, and the married MP was a 55-year-old father of five. She was saved from being groped only because he had to rush off to a Commons vote.

Lady Freud, 89, has said she is ‘profoundly sorry’ for what her husband of 58 years did to his victims, but has issued no further statements.
