Alexandra Pursey first met George Best at the age of 22. Before long they were married. Their troubled, tempestuous marriage was under constant scrutiny by the media and finished after 8 years. But, even after divorce there was a bond between the couple, who remained great friends right up to George's death.
Ritula Shah talks to Alex Best about her life with George, why she finally left him and how she coped with saying goodbye to a man she never stopped loving.
