CRIME & INVESTIGATION – Wednesday 23 January, 9.30pm

The testimony of a woman who’s been lying all her life. At the age of 30 Emily Horne has been married five times – but she never bothered to get divorced. In her wake she’s left a string of confused husbands and lovers. She’s worked in the porn industry and as an escort. She’s served one jail sentence for bigamy. She was recently on trial again for the same offence. This giddy mix of sex, deceit and betrayal is a tabloid editor’s dream. But behind the lurid headlines is a darker tale of mental illness, addiction and neglect. Emily says she wants to be in a film in order to present the truth about herself. But does she? Her version of the truth is wildly at odds with that of the husbands, lovers and family members who appear in the film.
