While the phone-hacking was going on. I know there were rumours before, but it was entered into evidence in the trial today.

Poor the Ross kemp (prepared to be corrected on dates)

I feel really, really uncomfortable about this being brought up. I mean, it's a complete invasion of their privacy.

little Your dates are spot on. In the middle of their affair, both Brooks & Coulson got married.

I know! Shocking! No schadenfreude at all, not for me, no. grin

I do feel very sorry for the poor little surrogate baby. That always felt a little distastefully like a convenient PR stunt. Feel even worse for the child now.

Who needs phone hacking when you have the High Court?

Bloody hell.

She married Ross whilst shagging AC?


PiratePanda Thu 31-Oct-13 15:24:02

Totally legitimately entered into evidence as proof of at least the potential for a conspiracy. I reckon they've had it.

Exactly an invasion of their privacy, wonder how a taste of their medicine is like?

Heds poor spouses and baby.

Is that his wife that's turned up with him? Is she mad? Can't comment on Brook's husband, it wasn't him she cheated on.

How dreadful for them, having the dirt dug up on their private lives grin

Levantine Thu 31-Oct-13 15:32:41

Wow. That baby she had last year has been born into a complete shit storm hasn't she sad. Amazed that it was so long standing. Sociopathic behaviour.

PiratePanda Thu 31-Oct-13 15:34:01

Am assuming Mr Brooks is post-affair; I have no idea about Coulson's private life.

I wonder if the Guardian knew about this when they privately warned David Cameron not to appoint Coulson as his spin doctor?

LoofahVanDross Thu 31-Oct-13 15:34:43

When she was with Ross? OMG, who in their right mind would cheat on Ross?

PiratePanda Thu 31-Oct-13 15:35:19

Also, if that is Coulson's wife with him, I do hope this moment is not the first she's heard of the affair...

Maybe Dad will be given the lighter sentence or the Nanny can be given pr?

From International Business Times:

The pair had a sexual relationship between 1998 and 2004. Both were married at the time.

Brooks continued her affair with Coulson for two years after marrying former EastEnders actor Ross Kemp in 2002. They divorced in 2009. In the same year, she married Charlie Brooks - who is appearing alongside her in courty on a charge of perverting the course of justice

Unbloodybelieveable. Though it goes some way to illustrating her sense of entitlement.

deepfriedsage Thu 31-Oct-13 15:44:48

i wonder if something will come out about her former boss and the reason for his divorce?

Flibbertyjibbet Thu 31-Oct-13 15:49:07

I didn't know that she was married to Ross Kemp.

How odd then that she went on to marry a person with the same name as an East Enders Actress grin

Wasn't Grant Mitchell beaten up by his wife and police called at one stage?

Wow, the letter found on the computer is a bit of a gift isn't it.
