Russell's last wife Hetty Baynes says he has a very short fuse, and he is well-known for breaking into the projection box at cinemas if he's not impressed with the way a film is being shown.

We're not sure what kind of women Ken likes. He was all for showing Amanda Donohoe with her kit off for most of 'Lair of the White Worm', but then he also brought us Alan Bates and Ollie Reed wrestling naked in 'Women in Love'. ®
