High-society sed­uc­t­ress dubbed ‘Ascot Charlie’ arrested after ‘fleecing string of wealthy exes’

A HIGH-society sed­uc­t­ress has been arrested after wealthy exes claimed that she “fleeced” them.

Charlie McEntee, nicknamed “Ascot Charlie” after parading at the races in a see-through dress, has had at least five husbands plus a series of rich lovers.

They have told how the self-styled wealth manager blew their socks off in bed before allegedly vanishing with cash, cars and valuables.

But Charlie, 49, was arrested on Friday over claims she burgled the home of latest flame John Carey.

Another of her exes, Simon Whiffen, is locked in a legal battle with her, which he says has cost him thousands.

And her racehorse trainer brother Phil McEntee told how she is also facing a police probe over claims she stole a ring from her ailing mother Belinda’s finger in a care home.

Mum-of-two and former financial adviser Charlie denies any wrongdoing and calls the claims “deranged”.

But Phil, 50, said: “My ­sister has left a catalogue of destruction behind her. I knew she had been married five or six times.”

Mr Carey, 48, a millionaire accountant and property developer from Hutton in Essex, is the latest in a line of men bewitched by Charlie’s charms.

He claimed that the slim “sex-mad” temptress dragged him into a hotel bed for a frantic afternoon romp on their ­second meeting in November 2018.

But their perfect life in Spain fell apart after John received an anonymous letter from an ex-partner.

Police are now also probing John’s claims that Charlie vanished with a £120,000 deposit he had paid on a villa.

She was arrested by Essex detectives at Stansted Airport on arrival from Alicante on suspicion of burgling his UK home in December of £10,000 of designer watches.

Dad-of-three John said: “We met on Match.com while I was in the middle of a divorce. I was completely taken by her.

“She was a wildcat in bed, noisy, demanding and adventurous.”

Seven months later, John and his new lover moved into a swish £300,000 four-bedroomed villa in Murla on Spain’s Costa Blanca.

John said: “We enjoyed an idyllic summer last year. She assured me that a house purchase was on track and to leave financial matters to her.

“But everything changed in November last year when a letter revealed she had been married six times since 1992.

“It contained some serious allegations. I told her. She instantly turned aggressive. I asked for my £120,000 back.”

John caught the first plane back to Spain and dashed home to call local police. There was no sign of Charlie.

But her Spanish lawyer Ignacio Pellicer said: “My ­client confirms that these are all lies and the police investigations will prove this.

“She says that the rantings of psychotic ex-partners and a jealous brother are exactly that — deranged rantings.”
