Publication: OK! Magazine
Marlene Bentley of North Yorkshire complained that the front cover of the magazine – which contained a headline for the “Star-studded wedding” of “Wayne and Coleen” – would have misled readers to believe that the issue contained coverage of the couple’s wedding. In fact, that issue of the magazine contained just a full page advertisement for the wedding which was to be covered in the following week’s edition.
The magazine emphasised that its intention was not to mislead the complainant or any of its readers. The magazine took on board the comments she had made and offered her a six month subscription. The complaint was resolved on that basis.
