London: British PM David Cameron on Sunday faced huge embarrassment after details of intimate text messages he exchanged with former News International boss Rebekah Brooks were published by the media.

In one message, Cameron thanks Brooks for letting him ride one of her family's horses, saying it was "fast, unpredictable and hard to control but fun" , texts obtained by The Mail on Sunday showed. In another, a gushing Brooks tells Cameron that she felt so emotional listening to his Tory conference speech in 2009 she "cried twice" , adding, Will love "working together" .

Downing Street told media that the text messages were authentic and said the PM cooperated with Justice Leveson Inquiry, which is going into the culture, practices and ethics of the media in London.

The two messages published by the Mail on Sunday were sent in October 2009, soon after Brooks became chief executive of News International.

The messages have also been at the centre of a row between Labour MP Chris Bryant and Cameron and the contents will be a thorn in the PM's side, the British media commented. Bryant has challenged Cameron to publish all the material himself, suggesting it was "too salacious and embarrassing".
