Lady Lucan (pictured) is speaking to a documentary crew about the night her husband murdered their nanny
The reclusive wife of long-lost peer Lord Lucan has finally agreed to speak about her husband trying to bludgeon her to death at their Belgravia home.
Lady Lucan will speak about the fateful night for the first time in a documentary and has been seen in front of cameras at various London locations, including the Knightsbridge church where she married the 7th Earl.
She is understood to be receiving a £56,000 fee for her appearance, according to the Daily Express.
A friend of Lady Lucan told the paper her decision to co-operate with the documentary was motivated by money and to get 'revenge against her son' George.
She told the paper: 'She knows George will be angry when he sees the film.'
Her relationship with her children is said to have deteriorated following a breakdown.
Professional gambler Lord Lucan disappeared in November 1974 after the family nanny Sandra Rivett was found murdered at his home in London.

Officers concluded Lord 'Lucky' Lucan had murdered the nanny and then fled, leaving behind a trail of debt.
The mystery of his whereabouts has provoked decades of speculation and Lady Lucan has never spoken to filmmakers about the events of that night.
For some time Scotland Yard thought he had fled to Namibia but he was officially declared dead in 2016, more than 40 years after his disappearance.
His son George Bingham was finally granted a death certificate for his father in February last year and has now inherited the title as 8th Earl.
