'She met him while she was visiting someone in the Royal Brompton Hospital. The lift — the elevator door — was about to close and someone stuck their foot in it.
'The doors opened and she looked into his eyes and said, 'I knew there and then.''
It's claimed that she was set to marry Khan, but he was reluctant because of the media attention.
