Sophie Ellis-Bextor's husband lost his mobile phone while riding a roller-coaster.

The pop star and her spouse, The Feeling bassist Richard Jones, went to Thorpe Park theme park in Surrey, England, on Monday (19.05.14) for a preview of the attraction's new Angry Birds Land.

The musician - who has three sons, Sonny, 10, Kit, five, and Ray, two, with Sophie - was having a great time but was left red-faced when he forgot to keep his phone safe when riding the Nemesis Inferno and when he told Sophie about his mishap she took great pleasure in teasing him.

A source told BANG Showbiz: ''Richard went off for a couple of hours to enjoy the various rides, but didn't take advice to keep his personal belongings safe on the Nemesis Inferno which has a vertical loop and corkscrews. He looked a bit sheepish when he told her his phone was gone but Sophie thought it was funny and gave him a ribbing.''

The former 'Strictly Come Dancing' contestant and her family are massive daredevils and travel the UK visiting theme parks and Sophie even organised for her oldest child Sonny to celebrate his 10th birthday at Thorpe Park last month.

Thorpe Park's Angry Birds Land opens on May 24 and rides include a 4D Experience and the Detonator: Bombs Away - a 100ft rapid drop tower ride.
