Kelly Brook broke down in tears after she was stopped by British police.
The actress was given a ticket by officers after she was seen driving away from traffic lights in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, while talking on her cell phone.
A source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "The officers didn't treat her differently than anyone else. They explained it was against the law and gave her a stern talking to.
"Kelly became really tearful and seemed incredibly embarrassed. She was apologising over and over again.
"She wasn't looking for any special treatment despite being famous and accepted the ticket in good grace. As soon as she got teary, she put on a massive pair of sunglasses and quickly regained her composure."
According to a source close to Kelly, 28, insists the British star is "really sorry" for her actions.
People who are caught talking on their phone while driving face receiving an £80 fine and three penalty points on their license.
