Complainant Name:
Mr Phillip Scofield

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Best


Mr Phillip Schofield complained, through Ben Webster, Head of Entertainment Programme Publicity at ITV, to the Press Complaints Commission that the magazine had incorrectly claimed his relationship with Christine Bleakley, his co-presenter on Dancing on Ice, was tense.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following correction:

We reported in our 7 February edition on claims of tensions between Phillip Schofield and Christine Bleakley, presenters of Dancing on Ice, which we accept are inaccurate. Phillip's representative has contacted us to make clear that he and Christine have an extremely good relationship; Phillip denies any "coolness" between them and is fully supportive of Christine and the new panel of the show. We are happy to set the record straight.
