Call girl author: How dare you say I wasn't a hooker - I'll take you to court

A CALL girl whose secret life as an escort became a hit TV drama is suing her ex after he claimed she never worked as a prostitute.

Brooke Magnanti's Belle de Jour diary of her time as a high-class hooker made her millions.

But now the 39-year-old has started legal action against former lover Owen Morris after he said she fabricated her tales of sexy high-jinks.

The ex-RAF officer says her X-rated stories were based on their sex life.

Magnanti has started an action at the Court of Session in Edinburgh amid claims Morris defamed her by stating she was never a hooker.

She says the allegations damaged her reputation.

Her action has been lodged in response to Morris's own proceedings against Magnanti for defamation and breach of privacy. In a statement, Magnanti said: "I can only confirm a counter claim has been lodged."

The writer, who has a PhD in forensic science, found fame when her 2003 blog led to two bestselling books and the Secret Diary Of A Call Girl TV series starring Billie Piper.

Her legal team are expected to argue Morris's claims are damaging because she made her name writing a blog about her time as an escort.

Morris says publicity surrounding the book destroyed his air force career and damaged his reputation.

2015 is Scotland's Year of Food & Drink. Scotland is renowned for its unrivalled produce ranging from Stornoway Black Pudding to Arbroath Smokies. Scotland's fine produce is the result of unspoilt habitats and varied weather, a perfect combination for producing a wide selection of high quality fresh fruit and vegetables, fish, meat and plenty more, not forgetting whisky of course.He also said he did not believe she had been a prostitute.

Magnanti recently wrote about his claim in her blog, stating: "It's a direct attack on my integrity as a writer. When the case goes to trial, I will have to present evidence that I was a sex worker."
