The Mail on Sunday claimed yesterday that Russian spy femme fatale Anna Chapman will be stripped of her British citizenship on the grounds that her marriage to a British citizen was a ‘sham’.

Britain is “urgently reviewing” whether to deprive Anna Chapman of her UK passport and could ban her from returning to Britain.

Last week her lawyer said she would like to come to the UK from the United States as she has a passport through her former marriage, the BBC said.

Ms Chapman, 28, worked in the financial sector for a few years after moving to London in 2002.

Earlier this month Briton Alex Chapman, 30, from Bournemouth, Dorset, talked to a newspaper about his four-year marriage to the Russian.

He said they had met at a party in London in 2002 and married five months later.

A UK Home Office spokesperson said they were reviewing Ms Chapman’s passport situation.

“The home secretary has the right to deprive dual nationals of their British citizenship where she considers that to do so would be conducive to the public good. This case is under urgent consideration,” they said.

Shadow Home Secretary Alan Johnson said it “cannot be in our interests” to let her settle in the UK.

Meanwhile two of the four Russians expelled from Moscow in a spy swap are reported to be staying undercover in a British hotel.
