Complaint:

Miss Roxanne Pallett, the actress, complained that an online article was inaccurate when it claimed that she had said that she loved "stripping down to her smalls" and that her mother encouraged her to do so.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the magazine - which had taken the quotes from another publication and used them in good faith - removed the article from its website and published the following apology:

On 9 October 2009, we published an article on the Now website about Roxanne Pallett which claimed that she loves "stripping down to her smalls" and that her mother encourages her to do so. We accept that, although used in good faith, the quotes attributed to Miss Pallett were inaccurate and apologise for any embarrassment caused.
