The Met Police have since confirmed to us at CelebsNow: ‘An allegation was made by a member of the public to the Met that on 21 November 2018 they saw a 43-year-old man on his mobile phone while driving his car in the area of Great Portland Street W1.

‘The 43-year-old man has been sent a notice of intended prosecution.’

According to The Sun, CCTV footage has also emerged of him using a phone behind the wheel.

The case will be going to Bromley magistrates court on March 19.

If convicted, the dad-of-four – who shares kids Brooklyn, 19, Romeo, 16, Cruz, 13, and Harper, seven, with wife Victoria – faces up to six points on his licence and a hefty £2,000 fine.

We’ve lost our mentor, our coach and the man who made us. He taught us how to play, how to never give up, how important it was to win your individual battles and what we needed to do to play for Manchester United Football Club. He was always watching and always with us everytime we played, I can still hear him telling me NO MORE HOLLYWOOD PASSES. I can still see him as we played on The Cliff training ground looking down on us either with a proud smile or a loud bang of his fist on the window knowing any minute he would be on his way down to probably advise me in the most polite way to stop playing those passes. More importantly he made us understand how to work hard and respect each other and not just on the pitch. We won’t forget the life lessons he gave us. Eric we love you and owe you everything. ❤ Gary, Phil, Ryan, Paul, Nicky and David.
