    Angie Best reveals what really happened on her night with Elvis

    Angie Best reveals what really happened on her night with Elvis: It is one of the most intriguing stories ever to come out of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! - how Elvis Presley stole the girlfriend of his friend George Hamilton.
    Hamilton, who has a reputation as one of Hollywood's greatest Casanovas, revealed on the ITV show that he had gone to one of Elvis's Las Vegas concerts with his girlfriend Angie MacDonald-Janes, who went on to marry footballer George Best.
    The perma-tanned actor said he had waited for 45 minutes while Angie went to Elvis's dressing room - and then left, feeling 'like an *****'.
    But when The Mail on Sunday contacted Angie Best, she gave a rather different version of events.
    She insisted her time backstage with Elvis was 'entirely innocent', although the singer gave her a turquoise ring and insisted she take his phone number. And she says that Hamilton was so jealous that he sneakily changed the numbers in her address book so she couldn't contact Elvis.
    The story emerged in last night's edition of the show as Hamilton, 70, told his fellow contestants about the concert in 1971.
    He said: 'There was a girl in London who I was dating called Angie - she married a footballer named Best. I was dating her so I brought her to Elvis's show. We went backstage.'
    Hamilton was close friends with Elvis's manager, Colonel Tom Parker, who lived near his Californian home.
    'Elvis was changing and he saw Angie and of course Angie just thought he was incredible. She said something about his concho belt [a native American belt with several metal buckles].
    'She said, "Elvis, where did you get those?" He said, "I've got a lot of them, I've got a collection, would you like to see them?" Well, I thought he was going to bring out the collection, but he said, "Come with me. So I see her go off and I'm waiting and waiting - 45 minutes go by and I felt like an *****. So I got up and said, "Guys, please tell Elvis that I saw the show and send him my best and please tell the young lady that it was lovely to see her and I hope all goes well" and I walk out of the casino. I never saw her again until 18, 20 years later on a plane and we were both going to London and she said, "Hi George, remember me?" And I said, "Angie, what happened?" She said, "Nothing". I said, "I waited 45 minutes and I never forgot it."'
    But last night Angie said of her brief relationship with Hamilton: 'It's funny how people's memories are different. He does sound a little bit bitter.
    'I had just arrived in Los Angeles from England. I was just 19 at the time, and I didn't really know who Elvis was, not properly. George took me on a private jet from LA with Sammy Davis Jr and his wife to Las Vegas. We went to the hotel and we watched the show, and afterwards the Colonel came over to our table and asked if I wanted to come backstage to meet Elvis.
    'George didn't like that at all, so he said I couldn't go, but the Colonel came back a little bit later and said Elvis had spotted me in the crowd and thought I was the prettiest girl there. I went back and spent about 45 minutes with Elvis. He wasn't my type at all - I'm English, I don't go for a man wearing a white jumpsuit with glittering stars!
    'He poured his heart out to me about how unhappy he was and how he couldn't find love, and he just wanted to find someone to love and settle down with.
    'To be honest, I was falling asleep. It was a bit of a rant - I think he was on drugs. But when I went to leave, he said, "Can I give you my number? I'd love to see you again". So he wrote his number in my book. And he gave me this turquoise ring he was wearing.'
    She said Hamilton was still there when she returned from her conversation with Elvis.
    'He must have stayed because we flew back to LA on the private jet with Sammy Davis Jr. I didn't go on any more dates with George after that. That was the end of him - he was such a womaniser. But I did see him about 15 years later, and he admitted he had gone into my little black book - it must have been on the private jet - and had changed the numbers so I couldn't call Elvis.'
    Angie, 57, met George Best in LA four years later. They married in 1978 and had one son, Calum. She now splits her time between London and LA, running her fitness centres Best Bodies, with a new one opening in Henley, Oxfordshire, next week.
    'I've still got the ring,' she said. 'I keep it in a very special box. The last person to wear that ring was Elvis Presley. (News, Source: James Tapper and Amanda Perthen, Mail Online)

    Re: Angie Best reveals what really happened on her night with Elvis

    and I don't believe it myself.

    Sure, she met him and Hamilton got annoyed

    but i don't believe Elvis crying his heart out about look for love - he was married to Priscilla at the time - and don't see Elvis being that pathetic.

    I don't know if she tells the truth but that's the excuse every married man gives to take women to bed.

    Interesting story Franny, thanks for sharing it but I have a very strong feeling that both Angie and George used Elvis and exaggerated what really happened...like so many others to make themselves look good.

    Well,in part I agree with you,but if also true that in 1971 between Him and priscilla isn't doing very well,infact she live him in this year,and she tell him this between a concert and another!She have a touch............................................. ........................so maybe him say that.

    Totally agree Diane........people can't help exaggerating their involvement with him to look more important.
    There's no way he would have spilled his guts to a woman he knew for 2 mins......
    Even if his and Cilla's marriage was on the rocks.......he could pull any woman he wanted without the sob story!!!!

    if they admit to a wife, yes, there's the she doesn't understand me routine

    but her claim is that Elvis was looking for someone to love and to marry

    she seems to not realize that he was married.

    and Elvis didn't need to play the poor misunderstood hubby to get a gal into bed.

    It makes me sick but she's probably telling the truth.Im guessing she actually has that ring,to me that kinda backs up her story.
