Hollywood may well be a world of red carpets, paparazzi, luxury homes and glamour, but it also has its seedy side and ‘Hollywood Madam’ Heidi Fleiss was for many years right at the heart of it.

And back in 1995, acclaimed documentary maker Nick Broomfield made a film about her.


Yes, former Celebrity Big Brother contestant Heidi Fleiss may go down in BB history as the lazy American with the bad plastic surgery, but out of all those celebrity contestants this year, surely it’s Heidi Fleiss who has had the most colourful life?

Let’s face it, how many of the others have had a documentary made about them?

Heidi Fleiss: Hollywood Madam is showing tonight (25th January) on Channel 4 at 11pm
