Complainant Name:
Ms Holly Willoughby

Clauses Noted: 3, 6

Publication: Best


Ms Holly Willoughby complained to the Press Complaints Commission through Swan Turton solicitors about photographs showing her and her young son (taken without her knowledge as she and her son walked along a street). She had previously made it clear via the PCC that she did not wish pictures of her child to appear in the media (albeit that her message had not been fully communicated to Best magazine).


The matter was resolved when the PCC negotiated publication in the magazine of the following statement:

"Last November, Best Magazine ran pictures of Holly Willoughby and her young son Harry. Holly has informed Best magazine that she has kept her son out of public view and therefore objects to pictures appearing of him in the media. Best magazine has noted her wishes and acknowledges her position".
