James Bond - Barbara Broccoli: 'Max Clifford Never Met My Father'

James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli has given evidence in Max Clifford's sex abuse trial, telling jurors the celebrity publicist had "never met" her famous father despite allegedly promising a role in a 007 movie to a young actress.

Clifford is accused of molesting seven females, aged between 14 and 19, over an 18-year period, and a court in London has heard one woman was attacked by him after he offered to land her a role in 1983 spy movie Octopussy.

However, Broccoli - daughter of original Bond producer Albert 'Cubby' Broccoli - took the stand on Monday (24Mar14) to tell the court Clifford had never even met her father.

She told the jury, "Max Clifford represented a couple of gymnasts we hired on Octopussy. He was just an agent."

Earlier the jury had heard from a woman who claimed Clifford attacked her in his office when she attended a meeting about the possibility of him representing her after she won a role in Octopussy.

Clifford, 70, denies 11 charges of indecent assault between 1966 and 1984.

The trial continues.
