Complainant Name:
Mark Charnock and Charley Webb

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: News of the World

Complaint:

Mark Charnock and Charley Webb, both actors in the television programme Emmerdale, complained that the newspaper had stated that they were an item. In fact, they are just good friends and colleagues; Mr Charnock, in fact, has a wife and children. The complainants were also concerned that the newspaper had received a denial from the programme’s press office – despite not contacting it until during the print run – and failed to include it in later editions.

Resolution:
The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a correction, making clear the true nature of the relationship between the two actors.

Report: 72
