David Cameron’s former director of communications Andy Coulson appeared on the Christmas 1997 special edition of sports panel show They Think It’s All Over — and whacked himself in the head with a mask of boxer Frank Bruno.

The then showbiz hack was attempting to illustrate a Sun scoop which revealed the boxer had quit the Spice Girls movie after one of his sons was refused the band’s autographs.

This was six years before the paper was forced to apologise for the headline ‘Bonkers Bruno Locked Up’ — a splash which Rebekah Brooks admitted in court last month was one of her worst mistakes.
