Rebecca Tott, 20, was suspended as housing minister Dominic Raab’s diary secretary on Wednesday amid fears she could become a blackmail target – and now MI5 is being urged to investigate.
She was exposed after going on paid-for dates with an undercover reporter, boasting she knew the MP’s “every move”.
She is now under investigation by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, but a former Met royal protection chief says the security services need to"know all they can" about Rebecca's activities.
Dai Davies told the Mirror: "The security services need to work with the Cabinet Office to establish who this woman has met and what she has told them."
The Sun can reveal she was paraded by officials as a model apprentice, featuring as a “Success Story” on promotional leaflets.
Rebecca — sister of TV star Laura Tott, a waitress in Channel 4’s First Dates restaurant — listed herself on SeekingArrangement.com, a site for rich men to meet young women.
She charged £750 for dates. But it was a security risk, as she is bound by the Official Secrets Act.
She told the reporter “I run a minister’s life” and joked how “she’d love to get sacked” for romping on her boss’s desk.
The apprentice claimed to earn up to £5,000 a month from rich clients – including an aide to the Arab royals, and told the Mirror's undercover reporter: “You’ve got my undivided attention for a few hours on Saturday.

Rebecca, of Ashford, Surrey, joined the civil service at 16. She rose quickly, and was diary secretary for Lord Heseltine before starting for Mr Raab in January.
Her office in the Ministry of Housing is said to have been only a stone's throw from Home Secretary Amber Rudd's office.
Rebecca spoke of her pride in the job online.
Yesterday she deleted her social media accounts, although her poses with sister Laura, 27, in front of Laura's 79,000 Instagram followers remain.
On her TV star's sisters social media account she is seen cuddling up to her sibling – who heaps praise on her in the captions, talking of her “love” for her.
She told The Sun: “This is having huge implications on us as a family.
“Obviously the allegations aren’t fantastic. They aren’t great for my career, but we’ll deal with that.”
The Housing Ministry said: “We are investigating. There is no suggestion any official information has been disclosed.”
