The Power of One Infographic

Stuart Maiden can consider himself lucky to have escaped with all his dangly bits still attached to his body after wife Sally discovered steamy text messages on his mobe, the Sun reports.

One of the XXX txts read: “Don’t do too much down the gym, save your energy for Wednesday. XXX” - sufficient cause for Stuart's missus to blow a gasket. The fuming 34-year-old said: “I thought he was having an affair. I went nuts.”

What she didn't know, however, was that her apparently athletic other half had borrowed the phone from a shop while they repaired his own. The shop, in Bridgend, South Wales, had omitted to erase the previous owner's messages. A relieved Stuart noted: “We can laugh now. But she was set to chuck me out at the time.” ®
