Bill Clinton claims he could not have had sexual relations with Monica Lewinsky because he was at Pizza Express in Woking at the time.
The former US President distinctly remembers tucking into a family-sized pizza with wife Hillary and daughter Chelsea on January 11, 1996.
“I could not have had sexual relations with that woman,” Mr Clinton said in an extraordinary interview last night.
“I was at the Pizza Express in Woking. I remember it well because I spilt some mayonnaise down Hillary’s blue dress.
“The food was fit for a prince. It was so good, I was there on many occasions between 1995 and 1997.”
Former Woking Pizza Express waitress Lorraine Fisher, 34, said the Pizza Express branch was strangely popular with famous guests, who enjoyed tucking into the restaurant’s famous Alibi Pizza.
“We’ve had a few well-known faces through the door,” she said. “Lord Lucan popped in on November 8, 1974.”
Mr Clinton was prompted to remember his hungry trip to Surrey in 1996 after Prince Andrew last night claimed he was could not have had sex with teenager Virginia Guiffre because he was in Pizza Express in Woking with his daughter at the time, in 2001.
The car-crash interview gave The Queen the idea to ask the Duke of Edinburgh to take Prince Andrew for a drive.
