Is ‘Dirty Duchess’ Claire Foy Cleaning Up Her Act? Actress, 37, who will play the scandal-stricken aristocrat, is spotted wearing brushes, bleach and a new doormat near her north London home


She’ll get dirty on TV screens as a scandal-stricken aristocrat dubbed “the Dirty Duchess” — but in real life, it looks like actress Claire Foy is the Queen of Clean.

The 37-year-old star was spotted last week carrying a bucket of cleaning supplies, including brushes and bleach and even a new doormat close to her north London home.

The Crown star, who will play the Duchess of Argyll in the upcoming drama A Very British Scandal, wore a gray overcoat with sweatpants, trainers and a pink wool hat as the supplies were loaded into a car.

While it’s doubtful her casual outfit would last in aristocratic circles, Mrs Foy betrayed a soft spot for glamor by carrying a £2,000 Givenchy Mystic handbag and wearing designer sunglasses.

The showpiece BBC1 three-part drama, which begins Boxing Day, follows her falling out of favor amid her divorce from Ian Campbell, 11th Duke of Argyll, who was responsible for disclosing shocking evidence in court, including a photograph of the Duchess who simply has a pearl necklace with a mysterious man in her London flat.

The court hearing was also told that among her lovers were cabinet ministers, Hollywood stars and Royals, earning her the nickname “the dirty duchess.”

In granting the divorce, the judge said she was “a completely promiscuous woman whose sexual desire could only be satisfied with a number of men.”
