Complainant Name:
A woman

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: OK! Magazine

Complaint:

A woman complained that the front cover of the magazine had misleadingly suggested that Nikki Grahame had married Andy Scott-Lee. As the inside article made clear, this was a “fantasy” wedding arranged by the magazine itself.

Resolution:

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

We published a front cover (Issue 650) that referred to a “shock wedding exclusive” about Nikki Grahame and Andy Scott-Lee. The article that appeared in the magazine covered Nikki’s “fantasy” wedding with Andy. We apologise to any readers who were misled by the cover into thinking the marriage was genuine.

Report: 79
