Her US hubby Edward Winegard blamed their 1950 marital split on “letters from Profumo on Commons notepaper”, the documents say.

They show she gave the MP’s name as a reference when she applied for a UK visa the following year.

MI6 said it was denied as authorities feared Klein and Winegard — by then reunited — were “engaged in blackmail”.
