Tracy explores the very colourful private life of the man who was said to be ‘too randy to rule’. Hampton Court and Whitehall Palace provide the backdrops for a man besotted by sensuality who presided over a court obsessed by sex. A 24-hour ‘pox doctor’ was constantly on call. Tracy finds out more about him and his works, as well as the whirlwind of royal mistresses who appeared on the scene, the King's penchant for the seedier side of London and his love of actresses and sex workers.
