Footballer David Beckham no doubt regrets the day he sent a text message to Rebecca Loos. The lurid and embarrassing 'text sex' messages were splashed over newspapers world- wide, putting pressure on his marriage to former Spice Girl, Victoria. English footballer David James' marriage fell prey to techno-love after he tracked down his school sweetheart Amanda Salmon on the popular website Friends Reunited. He left Tanya, his wife of 13 years and mother of his four children, to live with Salmon. Friends Reunited has been blamed, in part, for the rising divorce rate in Britain. Last December, Norlida Abdul Rahman, 23, put on a brave face after her fiance, a football player, dumped her by SMS on her wedding day. She put on her dress and carried on with the wedding feast for 1,000 guests at her family home in Kuala Lumpur. Among the most famous people to have been caught out by their mobile phones were the late Diana, Princess of Wales - whose phone flirtations with James Gilbey, who called her 'squidgy', were listened to gleefully by a fascinated public - and her husband, Prince Charles, who graphically confessed his affection for Camilla Parker Bowles. Briton Mark Ridgewell, 44, was stringing along four potential girlfriends on an internet dating site, calling them all 'Princess' to avoid confusion. When he accidentally copied an e-mail to all four, they took revenge. Expecting a date with one 'Princess' at his local pub in Gloucestershire, he was confronted by all four.
