“Comedian Steve Coogan and former Director-General of the BBC Greg Dyke call out former News of the World features editor Paul McMullen on his publication’s morally reprehensible phone hacking activities.”

Then “actor Hugh Grant takes on McMullen, who the actor says revealed the sordid details of NotW’s phone hacking to him at a pub in Dover.”

The full story as it happened on the News Of The World Scandal can be found via:


According to the always reliable News Of The World newspaper, JUST like the characters in her favourite TV show, posh Christina Saunders knows good sex. And so she should, after seducing 1,000 MEN. The university-educated brunette longed to be as confident in bed as Sex And The City maneater Samantha.

So she set herself a 10-year challenge – to get a thousand notches on her bedpost. She said: “Sam went from one man to the next and was proud of it. I wanted to be confident like her. I got hooked on the buzz of one-night-stands.” She slept with at least one stranger a week, travelled the world hunting for men to bed, and took part in threesomes. But now Christina, 30, admits: “All I want is a man to love me – not one who just wants me for sex.”

Christina decided to copy Sam, played by Kim Cattrall, 53, during a bout of flu at university in Bristol. Until then she hadn’t been that interested in men, saying her first sexual encounter – with a friend while she was at secondary school – was “a disaster”. But when she fell ill in 2000, aged 20, a pal gave her the first series of Sex And The City to watch. Christina said: “The thought of four women gloating about sleeping their way around New York hadn’t appealed to me but I had nothing better to do so I watched it.

By the time she left uni with a 2:2 degree in English and sociology in 2003 she’d slept with nearly 300 men. “I didn’t feel dirty, just empowered,” said Christina. “I was addicted.”

Christina found she too enjoyed a Cosmopolitan – not the cocktail loved by the SATC girls, just men from around the world. She met Russian Sasha, in his 50s, in Puerto Banus, Spain, in 2005 and had sex on his boat. She said: “It was mad and frantic. He shouted instructions – in Russian.”

Girls weren’t off bounds either – Christina had a lesbian fling after meeting Katia at a swingers’ club in East London in 2007. “She led me into one of the private booths and started to strip me. It was the most seductive thing and the best orgasm I have ever had.”

Christina would keep a tally of her men in a notebook by her bed, rating each out of ten.

If she couldn’t remember their names she’d just describe their performance. Like the unknown from a London night out. “I was so drunk I didn’t care what his name was.” 2/10

Last month she bedded her Mr 1,000th at a friend’s party. “He was gorgeous, blond and fantastic in bed.” Now the challenge is over Christina does have regrets. “Good friends stuck by me but others accused me of being a slut. I took things too far. Now all I want to do is settle down. I just hope I haven’t put men off.”

Put men off? Why would you think that?
I’d like to re-cap at this point if I may. Here are some sentences I particularly enjoyed in this article. The UK tabloids never fail to amuse me.
– “…travelled the world hunting for men.
– “All I want is a man to love me – not one who just wants me for sex.” um…yeah.
– “…I had nothing better to do so I watched it.” Next time, read a book.
– “…once sleeping with 15 men in a week in Ibiza.” Isn’t that normal?
– “He shouted instructions – in Russian.” I want to pour wodka all over you, you dirty little capitalist!
– “Girls weren’t off bounds either.” I should hope not!
– “If she couldn’t remember their names she’d just describe their performance.” Classy.

I found a theme song for Christina’s tribute to her favourite show.
