Complainant Name:
Cheryl Cole

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun


Ms Cheryl Cole complained to the Press Complaints Commission through David Price Solicitors and Advocates that two March 2010 articles were inaccurate and misleading.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following apology in the newspaper and online:

As part of our coverage of the break-up of Cheryl and Ashley Cole's marriage we reported on March 4 the singer would fly to France to meet her estranged husband who was texting her lines from her songs. We accept Cheryl did not fly to France, no such texts were sent and she denies saying she was scared of life as a single girl as we reported on March 1. We are happy to set the record straight and apologise to Cheryl.
