In the UK does client privilege fall short when a crime is involved.?

Client refers to a lawyer's client, and if you were a lawyer, you'd know the answer.
Nobody else is privileged (legally).

If you give specifics about the crime then the confidant in question would be obligated to hand over that information. But they make sure to tell you not to mention anything specific and you can talk about the crime but, you need to be very vague. But if it's with a legal issue then the rules are different and you can discuss crimes in confidence.

That depends what you mean by 'client', who you're talking about and what the crime is.
