Just a few days after, on New Year's Day, a story appeared in the News of the World about problems the 33-year-old was allegedly having with ex-husband Brian McFadden's mother.

She was also hacked four times in the space of three hours before the tabloid ran stories with the headlines 'Kerry In New Coke Shocker' and 'Kerry Drug Row' on December 4 2005.

Mulcaire's interceptions of her voicemails were repeatedly followed by stories about her in the newspaper from January to March 2006.
