Actress Tori Spelling is terrified of phones, she has revealed.

The former ‘Beverly Hills 90210’ star admits she cannot communicate by regular telecom systems and has to rely on her Blackberry to keep in contact with friends and family.

She said: “I don’t like the phone. I know I’m an oddity, but I’m terrified of the phone.

“I communicate with my Blackberry – it has saved my life. My husband Dean hates it, but I have to have it with me at all times.”

Spelling – who is mother to son Liam, two, and 16-month-old daughter Stella – also revealed she no longer has the money to continually spoil her children.

The blonde actress – who was left a derisory amount in her late millionaire TV producer father Aaron Spelling’s will – said: “Given my financial situation, as it stands, the only thing I can really spoil them with is love – and that’s the most important thing, so I have no worries with that! Family dinner is extremely important to me. Our schedules are so chaotic right now, but I’m really trying.”
