Complainant Name:
Miss Louise Pyne

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Daily Telegraph


Miss Louise Pyne complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article was inaccurate when it suggested that she had said to the television presenter Miriam O'Reilly "Is it time for botox".


The newspaper made clear that the information had been taken from a witness statement. Nonetheless, the complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the addition of the following statement to the online article:

Louise Pyne told the Telegraph on 5 November 2010 that the discussion with Ms O'Reilly about whether it was time for Botox arose as part of a conversation between friends about BBC attitudes towards ageing. Ms Pyne wishes to emphasise that she did not tell Ms O'Reilly to consider using the treatment.
