Brooks said that the prime minister signed off his texts with his initials “in the main”, but that he occasionally wrote ‘lol’ for “lots of love” – until she pointed out to him that ‘lol’ actually means “laugh out loud” in text speak.

She has also admitted that Cameron texted the words “keep your head up” in July 2011 after she stepped down as chief executive of News International amid the phone-hacking scandal.
