UK tabloid The Sun says it has refused to pay £20,000 for a topless picture of Voice of an Angel Charlotte Church which is currently doing a tour of the UK mobile phone circuit. The "Page Three" style snap was snaffled from Church's squeeze Gavin Henson's mobile phone after he mislaid it on on a night out in Cardiff.

As is the local custom, the lucky chap or chapess who subsequently found the phone immediately set about sending the picture to as many people as possible. Nature then took its course. The Sun quotes a "close pal" of the Welsh chanteuese as saying: "Charlotte and Gavin sent sexy texts when they started dating. The photo was just some private fun. I think they'll be more careful." The paper further states it will not publish the photo to spare the poor girl further embarrassment. ®
