Complainant Name:
Ms Alexandra De Gale

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun

Complaint:

Ms Alexandra De Gale, a Big Brother contestant, complained that the newspaper inaccurately suggested that she was the girlfriend of a gangland criminal and that she had received a six-month restraining order for harassing another woman.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following apology:

“We would like to make clear Big Brother contestant Alexandra De Gale was not issued with a six-month restraining order by Croydon Magistrates, has never physically threatened former colleague Laura Barnes or any of her family and is not involved in a relationship with Courtney Hutchinson nor any other member of the PDC gang as we reported on June 7. We apologise for the mistake.”

Report: 77
