“Nancy Dell’Olio left a voicemail message for me.
‘Piers, darling, I am in Rome and thinking of you. I hope you have recovered after our night together. Let’s get together again soon, you naughty man. Love Nancy.’
Given that it was the Daily Mirror, under my editorship, which exposed Sven’s fling with Ulrika Jonsson after learning of a similar message left by the then England manager on her phone, I can only hope and pray the gutter press (ha ha) aren’t hacking into my mobile now…
More importantly, I seem to have the world’s most famous footballing mistress and the world’s most famous talent-show contestant, fighting for my affections. Could get tricky.”
