As captain of the most successful England rugby side of all time, Carling was an obviously talented leader of men. But when it came to his personal entanglements with Diana, wife Julia and girlfriend Ali c*ckayne, things didn't run quite as smoothly. In fairness, he does possess a sense of humour superior to the average Neanderthal rugger bugger, an element which is likely to have attracted Di to him. According to legend, Carling spun into Diana's orbit down at the gym, where the pair are said to have shared intimate coffee mornings. As with James Hewitt, Carling appears to have impressed Di with his ability to get on with her boys, both of whom, fortuitously, are big rugby fans. He is known to have presented both William and Harry with rugby shirts. Neither Diana herself nor Will ever publicly admitted any physically intimate aspects to their trysts but why the break up of Carling's marriage? Put it this way - Carling's pretty TV presenter wife Julia spoke against Diana in vehement terms when she eventually kicked Will out.
