Saucy old scoundrel Lord Bath has exposed himself by putting his amorous autobiography online. The hereditary peer, famed for a string of relationships that he refers to as his "wifelets", has launched the first of six volumes of his life story into cyberspace. From Strictly Private, To Public Exposure kicked off yesterday with the Loins of Longleat. Lord Bath’s writings will be racy and candid, but the 66-year-old has promised to remove all names and material that could prove upsetting to those involved. The aristocrat has collected 40 years of journal jottings to form this modest account of his love life. The full story is expected to run to some three million words, proving that there may be more than a modicum of truth in the line attributed to Mae West – it’s not the men in my life but the life in my men that counts. "My purpose is to reveal myself here on paper, at considerable length until, to the best of my ability, something approaching the entire Me has been laid open to view," he told The Times newspaper. Lord Bath, who lives at his Elizabethan stately home, Longleat House in Wiltshire, is known for his individualism and eccentricity. ®
