Teenage soprano Charlotte Church is reeling after discovering a topless picture she sent to her rugby star boyfriend Gavin Henson has been sent to hundreds of mobile phones.

The VOICE OF AN ANGEL star, 19, took the raunchy picture of herself with her mobile phone and sent it to Henson, 23.

But Henson lost the phone, and an anonymous person has sent the photo to friends, who have forwarded the image to hundreds of shocked recipients, reports British newspaper The Sun.

Church has always refused to pose topless for newspapers and is panicking because the picture is being offered to publications for $37,000 (GBP20,000).

Henson's agent PETER UNDERHILL says, "I will be looking into it."

A friend adds, "Charlotte and Gavin sent sexy texts when they started dating.

"The photo was just some private fun. I think they'll be more careful in future."
