“Unethical journalists” who conspired against her and “politicians who don’t know what is happening on the street” have been blamed for the 2015 collapse of the Kid’s Company charity by founder Camila Batmanghelidih, who also claimed that she was not responsible for the failure, despite making “lots of mistakes”.

She was speaking to The Sunday Times in an interview ahead of the publication of her autobiography and defended spending £55,000 on one “kid” in his 20s, a drug addict with a long criminal history who she sent to luxury spa Champneys, where he enjoyed a chocolate exfoliation scrub and a cocoa wrap.
