A conservative Party politician - who campaigned with British Prime Minister David Cameron during the last election - was reduced to tears after his wife was exposed as a £70-an-hour ($118) prostitute.
Mike Weatherley, 53, said he had no idea his Brazilian spouse Carla had been working in three "massage parlours," under the names Bea, Adriana and Bianca, The Daily Mail reported.
The 39-year-old was caught on camera performing a striptease and offering services to a weekend newspaper's undercover reporter.
When asked whether she minded selling her body, she replied: “I like it here, nice clients, nice people, nice place and good money.”
An emotional Mr Weatherley, who met his wife on a business trip to Rio de Janeiro 10 years ago, said they had been separated since February this year and remained good friends. It was his second marriage.
"I am still very shocked by the news and am trying to come to terms with it," the father-of-three said. "I do have proof that we have been separated since February which I can show if needed."
He began sobbing as he added: "I will speak to Carla but today I just need to be with my family."
The revelation will be a major embarrassment for Cameron's Government, with Mr Weatherley having taken his wife to functions in the run-up to the election and just months ago bringing her to the Houses of Parliament in Westminster.
