Complainant Name:
Ms Glynis Lofty

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: OK! Magazine


Ms Glynis Lofty complained that a front cover photoshoot purporting to be of David & Victoria Beckham which also referred to an interview inside the magazine was inaccurate and misleading since those photographed were, in fact, look-alike actors.


The complaint was resolved when the magazine published the following correction and apology:

On the 24 April 2007 we published as part of the front cover of OK! Magazine a photograph of look-alike actors of David and Victoria Beckham accompanied by the headings Victoria celebrates her 33rd birthday at home with David and incredible interview and pictures: you wont believe it. We have since been informed that some readers were misled by the look-alikes and did not realise that the front cover in fact referred to a spoof article about the Beckhams published inside the magazine. We regret that these readers were misled and would like to take this opportunity to apologise.
