IAN FLEMING based his James Bond character on composer Andrew Lloyd Webber's former father-in-law.
The theatre impresario's TV personality daughter Imogen has revealed the writer drew inspiration for his superspy from her grandfather.
She says, "He's based on my mother's father. He served under Ian Fleming in the war in naval intelligence and my grandfather is one of the men James Bond is based upon. It's a very cool claim to fame."
