LATEST: Sir Paul McCartney is threatening legal action against the makers of a British TV documentary which claims his wife is a money hungry compulsive liar.

Britain's CHANNEL 4 network are due to screen the show - which calls on former friends and lovers to delve into Heather Mills past - tonight (7MAY03).

Claims made by the show, HEATHER MILLS, THE REAL MRS McCARTNEY, include the allegation that former topless model Mills is a lying fantasist who had long planned to ensnare a wealthy husband.

However, the 60-year-old former beatle is reportedly fuming, and has instructed his lawyers to speak to Channel 4.

A spokesperson for the rocker, whose wealth is estimated at $1.1 billion (GBP760 million), says, "I've no idea what he'll decide to do."
