DEAR DEIDRE: I SLEPT with my boss – once – to pay off a debt. Now he’s emailed my husband, saying it happened several times and threatening to tell my family.
I’m 35 and my husband is 33. Three years ago, I got behind with catalogue payments. My boss is 44, rich and liked me. I came on to him and we had sex.

I asked him for a loan of £700 and he paid me, saying it was a gift.
Now he’s married to another colleague and they’ve emailed my husband saying I regularly had sex with him, which isn’t true. They want £1,000 or will tell my family what I did.
My husband is gutted and convinced I had a full-blown affair. I love him. How can I get him to believe me?
DEIDRE SAYS: You must beg and plead for forgiveness. Explain it happened only once and while the debt was no excuse to cheat, you felt desperate, embarrassed and ashamed.
Insist you will do anything to keep your relationship.
Do all you can to scrape together the £700 but keep the correspondence from colleagues.
Go back to your boss saying the debt will be repaid – but pointing out that blackmail is illegal and if there are any more threats, you will go to the police.
If your husband still won’t listen, get in touch with Tavistock for online couples’ counselling, at tavistockrelationships.org, 0207 380 1960.
