Ms Cheryl Cole complained to the Press Complaints Commission (through her representatives, Supersonic PR) that an article had referred misleadingly to her £1.5m comeback deal to ITV. Although the complainant had received a number of offers, she had not signed a deal with any network.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following clarification, accompanied by a photograph:

Our article of 28 August referred to Cheryl Cole's £1.5m comeback deal to ITV. Despite receiving a number of offers, Cheryl has not signed a new deal with any network at this stage. We are happy to make the position clear.
