Heather Mills reveals she's spent her £24million divorce settlement in 22 months

Heather Mills claims she has spent the bulk of her £24.3million divorce settlement… just 22 months after she collected the bumper pay-out from ex-Beatle Sir Paul McCartney. In an hour-long TV special she tells psychologist Dr Pamela Connolly – wife of comic Billy – that she gave a large chunk of the cash away. “Most of it’s been given to charity, gone into ethical businesses or paid for a couple of ­- properties for my daughter’s future security,” says Heather, who had six-year-old Beatrice with Macca.

And in a thinly-veiled swipe at Macca, worth an estimated £400million, she adds: “I could never sit with millions of pounds in the bank that could make matters change.” Dancing On Ice star ­Heather, 42, also compares Macca, 25 years her senior, to her dad saying: “In some of my ­relationships I have attracted a similar type of person to my ­father.” Pamela then asks: “Controlling?” Heather says: “Yeah”. “Powerful?” “Yeah”. “A little scary?” “Yeah”.

Talking of her ­relationship with Sir Paul she adds: “It was one of the best 10 years of my life and one of the worst. I didn’t have any ­control. It took me years to realise that. In the end I had to walk away.” Heather also talks about coming to terms with the loss of her leg in 1993. She says: “This counsellor came in and said, ‘How are you ­feeling?’ I went into survival mode and said, ‘I’m fine’. But she said, ‘You realise you won’t be as attractive to men’. I said, ‘Listen my dear. Even if both my arms and my legs were missing. I’d still be more attractive than you’."
