Complainant Name:
Ms Carol McGiffin

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Bella


Ms Carol McGiffin, a presenter of the TV show Loose Women, complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article - and headlines that appeared on the front page of the magazine - were misleading in giving an impression that she had upset her co-presenters (and reduced one of them to tears) during their feisty exchanges on the programme.


The matter was resolved when the PCC negotiated publication of the following correction in the magazine, under the heading "Loose Women":

Back in July we published a feature about heated debates on the show Loose Women, which had appeared to leave some of the presenters upset. The Loose Women have been in touch and would like to make it clear that, however feisty their discussions get, none of them have actually been upset by remarks made by others and in particular by Carol McGiffin. Specifically, Kate Thornton tells us Carol's never left her in tears. We're more than happy to clear this up.
