DIANA, Princess Of Wales's former lover JAMES HEWITT has lost his lawsuit against American TV network Fox News.

The ex-British Army officer sued the television channel for breach of contract following his swift dismissal from his $80,000 (GBP42,100) job as a war correspondent. Fox fired Hewitt when news of his appointment quickly surfaced in the British press.

Justice LOUIS YORK ruled Hewitt had not lost out on any wages because he went on to earn more than $100,000 (52,600) working in a similar role for Fox's rivals - work which he would not have been able to carry out if he had still been contracted to Fox.
