When Louis Met… The Hamiltons

1366

A 2001 episode of the popular ‘When Louis Met’ series by British documentary film maker Louis Theroux. He follows the former Conservative MP Neil Hamilton and his wife Christine Hamilton as they try and make a living out of their celebrity post-politics, Theroux ended with a major scoop as the pair were both arrested over an alleged sexual scandal during filming.

The scandal was one of the biggest stories of the year and British media organisations reported that Theroux was entering their property on numerous occasions, resulting in Theroux being sought out for questioning by reporters who wondered what he was doing with the pair. Hamilton was not the only Conservative MP to be followed by Theroux for the series, see also: When Louis Met… Ann Widdecombe.
