Complainant Name:
Kym Marsh v Daily Sport

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Sport

Complaint:

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.

Resolution:

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.
