Bond Star Awaits Tv Drama About Ex-Wife

JAMES BOND star ROGER MOORE is eagerly awaiting the screening of a British TV drama about his first wife, singer DOROTHY SQUIRES - which will look at the sleazy London clubs she performed in during their marriage.

Welsh singer Squires, who was married to Moore for 16 years, will be depicted in the third episode of BBC drama THE LONG FIRM, an evocation of Soho sleaze in 1960s London.

Based on JAKE ARNOLD's best-selling novel, one scene will show Squires performing in a club, when an audience member shouts, "What's he (Moore) like in bed, then?"

Squires - who died in 1998 at the age of 83 - screeches back, "F*** the lot of you!" - before storming off the stage.
