Here's a bizarre one: before 'investigative reporter' Glenn Mulcaire decided to find out what was going on in the celebrity world by listening to their voicemail messages, he was a tidy non-league footballer.
The man they call 'Trigger' retains a special place in the hearts of all AFC Wimbledon fans as, astonishingly, he scored the club's first ever goal, against Bromley, back in 2002.
It was an absolute belter too.....
Will Buckley, writing in the Guardian back in 2002, penned these strangely prophetic words: "Trigger - less than a decade from becoming a household name."
Aye, for all the wrong reasons.
