Complainant Name:
Mark Charnock and Charley Webb

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Star

Complaint:

Mark Charnock and Charley Webb, both actors in the television programme Emmerdale, complained that the newspaper had stated that Mr Charnock ‘had the hots’ for Ms Webb and that they had been seen ‘snuggling’. This followed a similar article in the News of the World, which had later been resolved with the publication of a correction. In fact, Mr Charnock and Ms Webb are just good friends and colleagues; Mr Charnock, in fact, has a wife and children.

Resolution:
The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a correction, making clear that there was no romantic link between the two actors.

Report: 73
