My uncle [Jimmy] was another larger-than-life figure who was very intimidating to me.’ I remember having dinner with him, my father and John Aspinall [the casino- and zoo-owner, a close friend of Teddy’s]. John Aspinall came out of that dinner saying, “Well, he’s no shrinking violet,” and that, for me, meant Peter was approved.’‘I walked in and thought, “I’ve arrived!
