Complainant Name:
Emma Atkins

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun

Complaint:

The actress Emma Atkins complained that the newspaper had published an interview with her that inaccurately quoted her on the subject of her career.

Resolution:

The newspaper - which has obtained the material from a freelance - made a donation to charity and published the following apology:

ACTRESS Emma Atkins has asked us to make clear she did not spend her days ‘watching tv and getting stuck into the net' after leaving Emmerdale in 2005, nor was she ‘reduced to living on poached eggs' as we reported on June 26. Emma, who is reprising her role as Charity Dingle in September, received four invitations to return to Emmerdale but declined due to work commitments. We apologise for any misunderstanding and at her request are making a donation to Leukaemia Research.

Report: 79
