Validate to accept UK phone numbers only

Validate to accept UK phone numbers only

I am wanting to validate a form field to accept UK phone numbers only and I assume I need to use regular expressions to achieve this but I am alien to using regular expressions. Subsequently I found websites with examples to use. I have tried the following:


But it doesn't seem to work.
It supposedly should accept the following.

07222 555555
(07222) 555555
+44 7222 555 555

Any ideas as to where I am going wrong?
I've attached the page if it helps.

Thanks in advance.
