When Anna was arrested while working in real estate in New York along with nine other Russians in 2010, the US said they had broke up the largest foreign intelligence network on American soil since the Cold War.

The FBI case against the spy ring was dubbed Operation Ghost Stories.

Chapman had been married to a British man Alex Chapman for four years after meeting him at a party in London in 2010.

After her arrest in New York he hired controversial publicist Max Clifford and sold her story to the press.

Mr Chapman said he was “not surprised” by his wife’s arrest, claiming her dad, Vasily Kushchenko, had been high up in the KGB and had a “huge influence” on her.

He said he first met his former father-in-law on the couple’s honeymoon to Zimbabwe in 2002, where he was serving as a diplomat.

Mr Chapman told the Daily Telegraph: “He didn’t trust anyone. He asked me why I had chosen a Russian bride and asked what business I had in Russia, and I said none.

“He was scary. He would never introduce me to other Russian people who came to the house and he always seemed to have a lot more security than the other diplomats.

“When I saw that she had been arrested on suspicion of spying, it didn’t come as much of a surprise to be honest.”

Anna had British citizenship through her marriage to Mr Chapman, but she had it revoked after her arrest.

She used the famous Charles Dickens quote from A Tale of Two Cities to describe her short time in New York, saying: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.”

Anna was deported to Russia as part of a prisoner exchange with the US.

With her arrest the redhead gained celebrity status partly thanks to her stunning good looks. She moved away from spying to become a model and later a TV presenter.

Mr Biden replied jokingly: “Let me be clear, it was not my idea to send her back.”
