Speaker's wife describes 'sexy' life in politics

Friday February 4, 2011

She is known for her bold behaviour. But Sally Bercow, the wife of John (pictured), Speaker of the House of Commons has admitted her latest antics might be a step too far.

The 41-year-old has posed provocatively for the London Evening Standard in nothing more than a bedsheet and has revealed intimate details of her personal life to the magazine.

In the interview, Sally said: “The view from Speaker’s House is incredibly sexy, particularly at night with the moon and the glow from the old gas lamps.”

She added: “I never realised how sexy I would find living under Big Ben with the bells chiming. Since John became Speaker, the number of women who hit on him has gone up dramatically.”

“I don’t get jealous because more men have hit on me, too. I think it’s hilarious that I have been referred to as the Carla Bruni of British politics.”

The mother-of-three also took to Twitter to air her views. Initially she seemed to regret her actions, tweeting: “I’ve been done up like a kipper. Mr B is going to go potty.”

However minutes later she added: “Tis a great pic though.”
