Complainant Name:
Kym Marsh v Daily Sport

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Sport


The Coronation Street actress, Kym Marsh, complained that front page pictures of her had been presented and captioned in such a way as to imply she had been sun-bathing topless during her recent holiday. This was not the case. A picture of her inside the paper, which did show her topless, had been taken on an earlier holiday some years ago.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated publication of the following correction, published with a picture of the complainant under the heading ‘Kym Marsh: An apology':

On 29 July we ran photos of Kym Marsh on her recent holiday. Our front cover suggested that she had been sunbathing topless, which was not the case. A topless pic we ran on page 5 was from an earlier holiday in 2003. We're happy to clear up any confusion and regret any distress we caused to Kym.
