On Tuesday, we relayed the extraordinary news that 18 Red Lion Court veteran Anthony Arlidge QC, 75, had left his partner of 12 years, judge and barrister Constance Briscoe, for a 27 year-old wannabe barrister called ‘Heather’.
We can reveal the identity of Heather below…
Bar Vocational Course (BVC) graduate Heather Lockwood [picture removed for copyright reasons], who was called to the Bar at Middle Temple in 2009, got together with Arlidge in September 2010.
They’re currently living together near the Inns of Court – not far from Lockwood’s workplace at a central London law firm [firm name removed for legal reasons], where she’s a paralegal.
She added: “Tony is too old for a midlife crisis. It is hilarious. I don’t know what she wants or what she is trying to do but good luck to them. Tony was giving a speech at my daughter’s birthday party. He told me just before we left to go there that he had fallen in love with this girl. I was very upset … but that’s life.”
