Spencer Matthews was victim of attempted sexual assault

By
Made in Chelsea star Spencer Matthews has opened up about the terrifying moment he was drugged and dragged into a man's car in what he suspects was an attempted sexual assault.

Matthews recalled fighting off an "unnerving" older man when he lived on the Caribbean island of Saint Bart's at the age of 18, commenting that he "felt like a fly trapped in a spider's web".

"I never thought Le Feeling nightclub was inappropriately named until this particular evening," he wrote in his book Confessions of a Chelsea Boy, as serialised in Now.

"As my vodka went down, I started to feel unusually light-headed. I saw that the man's cold gaze had turned into a suggestive smile. It was then I suspected he might have spiked my drink."

After leaving the club and feeling his body go numb, Matthews remembered how the man "approached and, knowing I was unable to move or speak, pretended to look after me".

He continued: "When there was no-one around he'd run his fingers through my hair and whisper to me that everything was going to be okay. I felt like a fly trapped in a spider's web.

"What did this man want with me? More than anything it was likely to be a sexual nature, but what if I woke up in a bathtub without a kidney? What if I didn't wake up at all?

"The next thing I remember is being dragged into his car. Sensing this would be my only chance to get out of this vile person's clasp, I began making as much noise as possible, hoping desperately that someone would notice.

"He tried to cover my mouth with his hand, but... thankfully the struggle attracted one passer-by's attention, who alerted my good friend Hervé."

Matthews also spoke about taking acid with Made in Chelsea co-star Oliver Proudlock, an experience he described as like "Fear and Loathing in the West Country", and an altercation with Colonel Gaddafi's son in extracts from Confessions of a Chelsea Boy.

The book is released on September 26.
